Wanted: Board Members – Common Share Food Co-op

We are reaching out to mission-driven leaders around the Pioneer Valley who would be interested in joining the leadership team of the Common Share Food Co-op (recently renamed from Amherst Food Coop)

If you…

  • Are drawn to contribute your wisdom and perspective to build success for a socially-responsible business
  • Want to increase accessibility for all to healthy, local, fair-trade food
  • Are interested in helping launch a cooperative business guided by the mission of “drawing together the diverse communities of the Amherst area in an inclusive space supporting food justice and local resilience,”

…then LET’S TALK!

The Common Share Food Co-op has over 500 members, but needs more growth and direction, so that we can open our full-service, community and worker owned, cooperative grocery store serving the greater Amherst area.

  • Have expertise in finance, real estate, or law
