"My membership just paid for itself in one purchase!", exclaimed a new co-op member-owner upon receiving her free whoopee cushion ($4.99 value), her 10% monthly member discount off $62 purchase ($6.20 in savings), her $5 off $10 monthly department coupon and $5 for taking the shopper survey. TOTAL SAVINGS = $21 minus the ANNUAL EQUITY SHE PAID = $20... A $1 EARNING! That means that the next 11 months of her monthly member discount and the $5 coupon are just a big BONUS!!!
Nevada grown organic ginger is now available at the co-op! This is a one of a kind experience if you love ginger. Harvest window is limited, come try some soon.

The Great Basin Community Food Cooperative's Board of Directors is in the process of creating a new 3 year strategic plan. This roadmap will help to guide us in our business growth for the years to come.
As a community we have fulfilled many of our greatest hopes and dreams for the co-op, yet we still have aways to go.
We check in with our membership every two years to gather feedback that allows us to update the big picture co-op vision. In order to better understand what our members & shoppers want, we need to hear from you.
The survey will be open from October 5th to October 21st. We will then analyze the results and incorporate the findings into the master 3 year strategic plan that we will publish in the Spring of 2017.
We look forward to hearing your feedback!
Thanks to everyone who voted in our annual board elections!
Meet our newly-elected GBCFC Board Members: Jake O'Farrell, Dominic Martin, and Arnold Carbone! The GBCFC Board of Directors is tasked with providing general oversight and governance of the Co-op and is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the Co-op’s financial health. They're responsible for making sure that the Co-op operates in accordance with cooperative principles and the GBCFC’s Purpose Statement and Goals. The Board also provides leadership and sets the overall direction of the Co-op through member engagement, research, visioning, and setting policy. It's a big responsibility, but we're very confident these dudes are up to the task.
