Joining the Co-op

Print your member-owner application

The Co-op is owned and democratically controlled by its member-owners. By joining the Co-op, you become a part owner of our socially responsible business.
Member-owners also participate in decision making in the Co-op, electing a Board of Directors at the Co-op’s annual meeting. Member-owners also receive a selection of additional benefits.

Becoming a member-owner is easy
Hand in your application at our customer service desk (pick it up in store or print it here), pay your processing fee and equity, and we'll take your picture and print you
your co-op Member-owner Card. There is no work requirement!

Socially distancing? 
Email your completed application to leah@flatbushfood.coop and we'll call you to process your equity payment and provide your Member-owner number for placing delivery orders.
We will make your Member-owner Card when you are able to visit the store.

Member-ownership is paid for with a onetime equity investment of $200. You may pay it in full. Or, you may pay a minimum $25 with your application
accompanied by a $15 one-time nonrefundable processing fee), followed by $25 minimum annual payments (due on the anniversary of your first payment) until the balance is paid.

Your equity investment is used to secure the co-op’s economic stability and provide capital for maintenance, improvement, and growth.

Should you choose to leave the co-op, your investment is fully refundable.
