Turning a Dream Into Reality

Kensington Community Food Co-op’s mission is to be a member-owned cooperative grocery store in the River Wards area that provides nutritious, quality food, products and services to its member-owners and the community. 

KCFC started with a shared idea to open a community-owned grocery store to serve the River Wards neighborhoods. The vision was that KCFC would:

– Increase access to fresh, high-quality food and support local producers

– Create good jobs for the neighborhood residents

– Establish a community-oriented space for neighbors to gather and learn

– Keep profits local and drive investment in the community

– After years of hard work and construction, we opened the store in April 2019!
