Your Community-Grown Grocery Store, Café, and Bar

The International Co-Op Alliance (ICA), defines co-ops as "enterprises owned and run by and for their members. (They) bring people together in a democratic and equal way with a 'one member, one vote' rule. The economic and social benefits of their activity stay in the communities where they are established."

KCFC is a cooperative grocery store that uses this model. We’re owned by our members and have a “one member, one vote” rule. We aim to benefit the community economically by hiring local residents and selling locally made products. Socially we are a community hub that offers meeting space and events.
