It’s not just a membership: KCFC’s shared ownership model means that you actually own a share of the Co-op. Ownership shows a commitment not only to the neighborhood, but to local producers.

Participate in the co-op’s growth – Member-owners are encouraged to get involved by serving on our committees and other volunteer opportunities.
You have the options of paying your investment of $300 in full (a one-time payment) or on an installment plan of $25 Twice a Year (every 6 Months).
KCFC is committed to having income not be a barrier to co-op membership; we recognize that a one-time $300 payment or $25 every other month may be a stretch for some of our lower-income neighbors. With that in mind, we created the Flexible Membership program. This program offers a low-payment plan that allows qualified member-owners to pay their equity in $10 installments twice yearly.
To be eligible, we ask those who apply to self-identify as a recipient of public assistance (SSI/SSD, WIC, SNAP, etc.) or as low income. You can request an application to the Flexible Membership program at the store. For more information check out our Food for All page.
