Mission & Core Values
Working together, we strengthen our local food system to be resilient, just, and healthy for the greater Silverton community.
- Viability: We are committed to creating a financially stable food cooperative business owned by our community.
- Locality: We are committed to prioritizing local farm and producer products.
- Community: We are committed to cultivating community connections between local farmers, producers, and consumers as allies in shaping our food system.
- Equity: We are committed to offering sustainable, ethically sourced food that is accessible to all and reflects the diversity of our community.
Being an owner of the Silverton Food Co-op gives you the opportunity to join your friends and neighbors in building a community-owned and democratically controlled economic institution that serves the owners and the greater community.
Co-op owners are helping to build a business that brings integrity to the marketplace; a company that is responsive to and operates with the consumers’ interests at heart, while providing the community with good jobs and good, healthy, local food.
