Free Range Food Co-op

Our co-op would not exist as it is today without the support, commitment, and dedication of volunteers. All of these volunteers are community members who want a food co-op, just like you! Once the co-op opens, the intent is that it will function successfully as a business with everyone who works there as paid staff.  However, there is a lot to do before we get to that point, and we can’t get there without people willing to commit their time, and positive energy.

The core volunteer group, is made up of different teams.  Within those teams, we have identified different positions that volunteers can choose to work in to use their specific skills and talents.  Please see here for descriptions of the different teams.

If you are interested in volunteering to help build the co-op, reach out to us!  Email Katelyn at volunteer.frfc@gmail.com to set up a time to talk, or you can fill out the volunteer application form.

Volunteering with the co-op can have many personal benefits.  Some of these could include:

  • Leadership experience
  • Volunteer experience
  • Potential for election to board of directors
  • Opportunity to make social connections and friendships
  • Résumé building experience
  • Opportunity for letters of recommendation
  • Experience building an organization from the ground up
  • Be a part of a team where your creative ideas are welcomed
  • Increased knowledge of food co-ops
  • Provide a sense of purpose, or personal challenge
  • Volunteering can also provide benefits to both mental and physical health
