The Co-op Spirit is a magazine and website focused on the many ways our co-op natural food organizations help their communities.

In November 2017 we mailed 14,000 free copies of the 1 st Issue of The Co-op Spirit magazine to over 350 co-op natural food stores to be distributed to co-op members, staff, customers and the co-op’s community. The magazine is focused on co-op community activities and future issues will have a News column to report on significant co-op events.

Two issues of The Co-op Spirit will be published in 2018. The Spring Issue will be distributed in April and the Fall Issue will be distributed in October. 14,000 free copies of both issues will be mailed to over 350 co-ops (35+ to each co-op).

Co-ops are encouraged to send us current news and information about their community activities. Click here for more information.

Advertisers in The Co-op Spirit can tell the entire co-op system about their products and services. Click here for more information and a Rate Sheet.

Co-ops can use The Co-op Spirit website to list their community activities and see what community activities other co-ops are doing. Co-ops can direct members and their community to their listing on this website to promote their community activities.
