Why would a cooperative grocery store be good for Haverhill?

MVFC

Economic Benefits-

Co-ops help the local economy by supporting and selling local food, produce, and products, thus keeping money in the local economy. MVFC, like many co-ops, plans on paying a living wage that will make it possible for employees to support themselves and their families.

Health-

Our co-op plans to carry fresh, local and sustainable food whenever possible.

Education

We will support our co-op members and the community by creating a place where everyone can share information & learn about food, health and good eating habits.

Community building

Share your opinion! Unlike traditional grocery stores, co-ops give every member a voice in how a co-op is run. Every member gets a right to vote when they join a coop & buy a “share”.

Support your community by food shopping! Food co-op profits are re-invested in the community; which can create additional jobs and greater economic activity. MFVC plans to operate in an environmentally friendly manner, including donating unsold items, composting, and recycling.
