Invest! Co-OWN it!

The New Orleans Food Cooperative is a consumer owned cooperative. A Member-Owner is more than a consumer! You own it! Member-Ownership is an investment in the cooperative system, local farms and businesses, and sustainable production methods. As a democratic organization, one share = one vote.  Unlike publicly traded corporations that allocate more voting power to larger investors, co-ops equalize the playing field by allowing one share and one vote per Member-Owner.  Everyone is welcome!  Your investment makes you a  member-owner of the NOFC. Member-owner equity is vital to ensuring the success of your co-op!
