Store Hours: 9am – 9pm, 7 days a week
Welcome to the East End Food Co-operative: Vancouver’s longest serving co-operative grocer is the local food store for the larger community. We specialize in local, healthy, organic and fair-trade products. A member-driven, unionized shop; all shoppers are welcome. Members’ interests link us to groups involved with the politics of food, the environment, other communities, and more. We are part of a growing wave of economic, political and food consciousness.
Founded in 1975, the Co-op was initially a volunteer-run buying club in a warehouse location, at a time when it was hard to get natural foods, particularly in bulk.
Members of the Co-op own the store. They may serve on the Board of Directors and committees. They attend member meetings, give direction to the Co-op, and – of course! – shop at the store.
2012 has been recognized as the International Year of Co-operatives by the United Nations. See www.2012.coop for more info. The City of Vancouver has affirmed an “East End Food Co-op Day of Recognition“, on behalf of our 37-year history and the 2012 International Year of Co-operatives. Stay tuned for details!
The East End Food Co-op held our Annual General Meeting on Thurs. April 26. Welcome to our new Directors!
