Just Food Co-op - Everyone Welcome

YOU can shape the future of our Co-op!

Whether you’ve lived in Northfield for a long time or are new to the community, within the last couple of years, you decided to become a member/owner of Just Food Co-op…and we’re so glad you did!

As part of our 20th Anniversary Celebration this year, we’ll reflect on how we got started in 2004, what has changed, and where we hope to go so that we can celebrate twenty more years of nourishing a just, healthy, and sustainable community!

Any Co-op member in good standing can become a candidate to serve on the Just Food Board of Directors, and the Board is always striving to broaden its perspective and better represent the community it serves. Joining the Board is an excellent opportunity to learn and practice good leadership and governance, serve your community, and to help steer the future of our cooperative.

Interested members can learn more about Board responsibilities and apply to be a candidate by clicking the link below. Elections to fill vacant seats on the Board are held each year from August through the beginning of the Annual Meeting in October. Results are announced at the Annual Meeting. New director tenures generally begin the following January.

Prospective candidates for the Board are strongly encouraged to get in touch with the current Board and attend one or more meetings before applying.


Our membership program is a simple way to get involved and support your community. A one-time investment of $125 gives you access to a long list of benefits, sales, and other opportunities to support this community and engage with other fellow members.

We’re always looking for ways to engage with you and the rest of the community. Keep an eye out for upcoming opportunities to hang with our members and team!
