MEMBERSHIP

What is a membership?

As a consumer-owned cooperative, Urban Greens invites its customers to become member-owners. Member-owners receive discounts on their purchases at Urban Greens and have critical roles in the structure and functioning of the co-op.

Being a member-owner includes:

  • Discounts on Urban Greens purchases (discount percentage depending on type of membership)
  • Voting on major co-op initiatives
  • Voting on board elections
  • The option to buy food by the case at a discounted price
  • Fun member events and opportunities

What are the types of membership?

We have two types of membership. Standard and Food-For-All.

Standard membership:

  • Member share is $160, which can be paid in full or $40/year over 4 years.
  • Each share purchased will cover a primary adult, a secondary adult (e.g. spouse or roommate), as well as all dependent children. Up to three additional adults may be named to use the account for an additional fee of $10/year per person.
  • Standard members receive 5% off Urban Greens purchases twice monthly (you choose) and double coupon savings (meaning all coupons are worth twice their written value)

Food-For-All Membership

  • The Food-For-All membership is for households that meet the federal low-income guidelines. See: aspe.hhs.gov/poverty-guidelines
    • Member share is just $80, paid in full or $10/year over 8 years.
