February is Love Your Co-op Month!

How much do you love your Cedar Falls Food Co-op? Enough to talk with others who would benefit from owning a member share? Enough to share our Facebook posts? Enough to host a co-op event such as a house party? The more new member-owners who join, the sooner we will have our brick and mortar store. And member-owners have a say in what our Co-op will look like, so why wait? Join today. Thanks to all of you for helping bring this community-grown grocery store to the Cedar Valley!


February is a great month to participate in Co-op activities to show your love for the Co-op while also beating those winter blues.


Here’s how:

Love Your Co-op Event at Chocolaterie Stam

Saturday, February 18 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

If you missed the Stam Open House last year, or if you were there and enjoyed sampling chocolate, stop by. We’ll have information about the Co-op, as well as be selling member-owner shares and co-op t-shirts. Sample some chocolate medallions and purchase a treat for yourself or a friend. Our generous business partner, Stam is not only offering free chocolate samples, but also have a gift basket of goodies you could win if you join the Co-op this month!


Co-op Member-Owner Orientation

Tuesday, February 21 from 5:15 – 6:15 p.m.

Are you a member-owner? This event is for you! Join us for the first Cedar Falls Food Co-op member orientation. We will gather at one of the newest business partner spaces, Cottonwood Canyon’s “The House” location at 419 Washington Street in Cedar Falls. Use your member-owner discount to grab a refreshment and join us to learn more about your co-op owner share and what that means for you and the community.


Tell us Why YOU Love your Co-op!

If you missed our member-mixer last month, you missed the chance to have your photo taken with the reason you love your Cedar Falls Food Co-op. Don’t despair – you can create your own photo and send it to info@cedarfallsfood.coop. Make a sign that says, “I Love My Cedar Falls Food Co-op Because….” and fill in the rest of the sentence. We’ll post it on our Facebook page if you get it to us this month!
