Greetings to the San Juan Island Food Co-op Community,

How do you like our little Co-op? What are its strengths? What would you like to see change?

What is your vision for our Food Co-op in five years?

This last year has been a good one for the Co-op. It has seen steady growth and strong support from the community. It has even become a bit crowded in that little store. Many people are dreaming of a bigger and better store. In response, the Co-op Board is gearing up to do some long range planning and needs input from you, the membership. We need to know what you want to see your Co-op grow into. We need to know what you want your Co-op to not loose sight of. We need to crunch the numbers and find out what we as an organization can bite off. We need people with opinions, knowledge and a little time to help us answer these questions.

This is a great chance to make you voice heard and help shape the future of the Co-op.

There will be an organizational meeting on Saturday, Jan 23rd from 1 to 4 pm. All members are encouraged to attend. If you are unable to make the meeting, but would like to be involved, please send an email to:

Location: 272 Olympic View Drive. Turn off Roche Harbor Road onto Terrace Drive. Take a right on the second Olympic View Drive. The house is the first driveway on the left. If you get lost, you can call 317-4181.

Hope to see you there.
SJI Food Co-op Board
