We've won $25,000 in the National Co-op Challenge!


The Garden City Food Co-op is thrilled to announce it has won $25,000 in the Co-operator's National Co-op Challenge. We'd like to thank all of our members, supporters, friends, and family for faithfully voting for our video every day during the month of September. We could not have done this without your support! We are so pleased that our friends, the Niagara Local Food Co-op, came in second place and have also received as cash prize of $25,000. Because of the support of people across Niagara, we've been able to bring in a total of $50,000 to support local farms and co-ops in the region.

Thank you Niagara!



AGM and Elections


Another election. Woohoo!

We are holding our first ever AGM and elections on the afternoon of Sunday, January 25! Invitations and agenda will be sent to members during the next month. If you or someone you know has time and passion for co-ops and strong skills to bring to the table, we are seeking up to four new board members to serve a two-year term. We are accepting board nominations until November 22, 2014.

It will be a wonderful afternoon. Light snacks will be provided! Click here for more information on our AGM, elections, and board applications.
