A Message from Our Board of Directors

As members were notified on January 25, our lease was terminated because of the sale of our building to a developer. We have limited time to vacate our current location — which must happen by April 30, according to the eviction notice — and make decisions about our future.

Currently, the Greene Hill Food Co-op is operating as normal. In fact, we need your buying and labor power more than ever to ensure we stay successful during this transition:
Our store hours and merchandise are the same.
Please continue to shop, work your shifts, and contribute to your committee.
Continue to meet other member-owners when you’re in the store.

Not a member? Because of our lease termination, we are not currently accepting new memberships. You can still shop at the Co-op by becoming a Trial Member or joining us for open shopping February 24-25. Park Slope Food Co-op members may also shop.

On February 28, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., there will be a special meeting of member-owners to hold a discussion and vote. It is there and then that we will settle the outcome of the Greene Hill Food Co-op. The Board will send an email to member-owners detailing our recommendations before the February 28 meeting. If you are interested in the future of the Co-op, and want to be a part of this decision making, we encourage you to attend. If you are not able to attend in person, online voting will be available. The results of the vote will be tallied at a follow-up meeting on March 7. Click here to view the agenda for the evening.

Simply stated, we have a limited time to take responsible action consistent with the principles that have guided the Greene Hill Food Co-op thus far. Our challenges are many, but our community has a wealth of experience, expertise, and vision.
