Welcome to the Garden City Food Co-op

Our Capital Campaign is on now. We are working towards our minimum goal of 500,00 and with your help we can get there.

We are now accepting investment for our Capital Investment Campaign. This means we are only a few steps away from eliminating the food desert in downtown St. Catharines. But building this store isn't only a good deed, it's an investment in your community that will provide a social benefit and financial return.

Garden City Food Co-op will be a grocery store located in downtown St. Catharines filled with fresh, locally produced and fairly priced foods directly from local farms. In this store, the money you pay for your groceries will be a contribution to the sustainable development of your local community. All for the better, you'll feed yourself, your family, your neighbours, and the local economy. The store is not owned by a corporation but by its members who have an active role in how it is run through our one member one vote system. Learn more about co-ops.
