New and exciting changes have happened to our Food For All Discount Program!
This program was originally implemented in 2017 as part of the Community Roots Outreach Projects (CROPs) and the Co-op’s desire to do more for the local community. The Food For All Discount Program allows those who qualify a full Co-op membership with an extended payment plan and 10% off in the store.
Now, in addition to this original option, we are offering the 10% discount without requiring membership, just proof of eligibility.
This change was inspired by meetings we had with two of our community partners, The Springfield Family Center and the Springfield Area Parent Child Center, to assess the value of our program. We found to truly fulfill our mission to be accessible to all members of our community we needed to make some changes. We hope to increase access to healthy and natural groceries, and grow our collaborations with area organizations to best serve our community.
We are very grateful for feedback from our partners, and the opportunity to become a better asset to the people of this area.

Please note: while we are closed for in-store shopping due to COVID-19, everyone is able to participate in our curbside pick-up ordering, and Food for All Discount Program participants will still save 10% on all eligible products.
