The Vancouver Food Cooperative (VFC) is a not-for-profit business planning to open a grocery store in west Vancouver, Washington, to provide accessible nutrition and local foods at a fair price. As a community-run business with a broad ownership base, our goal is to strengthen the entire community: shoppers, vendors, and growers alike. The cooperative started in 2003 with a group of volunteers and has since incorporated and is governed by an interim board. For more information: http://VancouverFood.coop
