Sustaining all of our bodies, minds, and spirits by selling healthy food and other products that are as affordable as possible
What really matters to me? Good health, family, friends, community, learning, kindness, cooperation, inclusivity, accessibility, justice, resilience, and service to others. That’s what Amherst Food Co-op is all about!
The health of a community is most accurately measured by the inclusiveness of its shared spaces. I look forward to the day when I can say to everyone, “I’ll see you at the co-op!”
Healthy food fuels our bodies and communities, as we honor our connections to the land and to each other.
It is a positive thing to do together….. nourish each other with good wholesome food and distancing ourselves a bit from agribusiness !
The Amherst Food Co-op will unite neighbors around healthy food, sustainability, and fair wages. I cannot wait until it opens!
We are excited to have a real Co-op in our area. I can picture ourselves picking up fresh local foods and being able to bring our own containers especially for things like bulk and cleaning products. It will be a nice addition to the local farms where we are already members.
“We are all in this together. Coops honor that. River Valley did it well in Northampton. We can do it well in Amherst. Onward!”
Sustaining the local economy by paying living wages, supporting local producers, and buying from fair-trade producers beyond the greater Amherst area
