Become a Member-Owner

Thank you for your interest in joining the Greene Hill Food Co-op! Being a member-owner of our cooperative community isn’t just about shopping. It’s about having an equal say in how we run, what we carry, helping to keep our prices fair by working a shift, and much more. We make decisions based on our Guiding Principles and have a number of Community Agreements to set intentions and behaviors.

Membership is open to any person over 18, agreeing to make an investment and commit to work a shift – at least 2.5 hours every 4 weeks.

Your information will be kept private by the Membership and IT Committees. Membership payments are processed by Stripe, and no card or banking information is saved on our server.

Please contact us if you encounter any issues while becoming a member. For technical support, please contact our IT Committee. For questions regarding membership in general, please contact our Membership Committee. If you were previously a part of the Co-op and would like to reactivate your membership, please email our Membership Committee. Thanks!
