Why should you become an owner?
Becoming an owner not only gives you a handful of great perks,
but you're also aiding the growth of our local
economy and community. With our recent expansion plans,
your Owner Investment is the key to success for Just Local Food.
Grown by Nature. Grown Together.
By becoming a co-op owner, it means taking a step forward in developing
a closer relationship with your community and the food you enjoy.
Your dollars directly support farmers, artisans and the products they grow and produce.
We, as a co-op, listen to your ideas regarding products and services you'd like to see us provide.
Our owners make it possible for the co-op to invest in the future of our business -
allowing Just Local Food to grow while supporting our workers and local producers alike.
We are committed to obtaining quality, healthy, local (whenever possible),
justly produced food that benefits you, your family, the producers, and the environment.
Not only do we take these values into account when we source our products,
but through our membership in the National Co-op Grocers, we are also able to advocate for sound
food policies regarding Organic Standards, GMOs, Fair Trade, and equitable treatment of workers.
Purchase your groceries with peace of mind.
Feel great about supporting an expanding local foods grocery that stewards
relationships with farmers, all while ensuring access to local, organic, high quality foods.
We believe your food choices matter.
Where you choose to spend your food dollars makes a difference.
By supporting local farmers, local food producers, and a community-owned grocery store,
you keep dollars circulating within Eau Claire and the Chippewa Valley.
You ensure local farmers are receiving fair prices for their goods, and you help
to create a healthy, thriving, sustainable community.
Local farmers, wellness, and community.
Since 2004, JLF has focused on sourcing from and nurturing relationships
with local farmers and producers of high quality, natural, and organic foods for our community.
We are dedicated to providing our customer-owners and community access to
high quality local, organic, and natural foods – all at a fair price.
From milk delivery to full-service grocery store.
The journey began in 2004, with a simple need: regular access to locally sourced,
organically grown whole foods and natural home products for our families.
It all started with a stand at the Eau Claire Farmer's Market and home delivery
service of Crystal Ball Farms milk. Originally organized as a worker-owned cooperative,
we've grown and evolved significantly since the early days. In late 2012,
the JLF Board voted to become worker and community-owned, and in July 2015,
the JLF team completed the transition to becoming 100% community-owned.
Have a voice in our future.
The co-op is a democratic organization and it needs you!
In order to achieve our expansion plans in 2018, we need the support of our community
through owner share investments. Owners are encouraged to participate in the following ways:
* Run for a seat on the board.
* Vote in elections and on by-law changes.
* Share your thoughts with the JLF team on comment cards.
“We have big dreams of creating a place
that changes the way people connect to
their food and the people in
