About Rogers Park Food Co-op: The Rogers Park Food Co-op is a community-owned business cooperative startup serving the far north side of Chicago with the mission to: Increase Community Access to Fresh Healthy, and Local Foods Support Local Farmers, Artisans, and Area Businesses Provide Clear Labeling and Full Product Disclosure Stock Items that are Sustainably Produced Serve as a Community Gathering-place Provide Community Health and Education Programs Strengthen Our Local Economy by Creating Good Jobs with Fair Wages Work in Tandem and Promote Local Area Businesses
Since the beginning of our organizing efforts, we have sought out the vast resources available to help new co-ops get off the ground successfully. As the saying goes, "why re-invent the wheel?" The wheel is a development model based on co-ops’ best practices in establishing a new co-op. This model, along with the corresponding support from industry-specific expertise, has guided us and keeps us focused as we navigate through the multi-faceted, complex process of opening a community-owned, full-service grocery store.
Throughout our start-up phase and beyond, we will also look to our owners to learn how we can best serve your needs, which makes the co-op stronger and helps us accomplish our collective mission.
