Our Mission

Coos Head Food Co-op (CHFC) is to contribute to the health and well-being of the community by serving as a source for wholesome, natural, and organic foods and other Earth-friendly products, in an environment that is accessible to all through a cooperative organization.  We are committed to encouraging and educating our community in a positive and renewing relationship with the Earth and its inhabitants.

Our Vision

Access to information about food, health, nutrition, and a sustainable environment to CHFC members and the community will be provided.

Active, ongoing efforts to increase the percentage of locally grown foods and environmentally sound products will be demonstrated.

Efforts to maintain the long-term financial health and sustainable development of CHFC through co-operative principles and commonly accepted business practices will be continued, while also striving to contribute to the sustainable development of the greater community.

CHFC will be a workplace that provides education and training, and opportunities for advancement, in an environment of mutual respect, cooperation, business transparency, and honesty.

Owned By The Community We Serve

Coos Head Food Co-op welcomes everyone, and membership has never been required to shop with us. Since the fall of 2010 however, we became a bonafide Oregon co-operative making us part of a growing, international movement of food co-ops. This means that now you can become an owner along with your friends and join a groundswell of folks that support quality food and food sources. We are excited about our business model, a win/win proposition that empowers owners and communities alike.
 

Come shop with us! We are located in historic downtown Coos Bay at 353 2nd Street, one block west of Highway 101 near Curtis St. Follow us on Facebook. And check back often as we continue to develop our website with features that will provide information and inspiration about how we are building community through food.
