About the co-op

The Potluck Food Co-op is Yukon's only member-owned grocery store! Our goal is to provide Yukoners with local, organic, and sustainable food that is sourced as close to home as possible.

The co-op began back in 2009, when a group of dedicated foodies got together to find a better way to provide healthy, ethical and responsible food for our families. In 2013, we hired staff and began operating our on-line grocery store in November, quickly adding the pop-up shop to take advantage of extra inventory. In the years since, we’ve moved location and are now updating our business model to be as effective as possible.

The food co-op operates as a for-profit business that is community minded, owned and run by the members who use its service. We use a one-member one-vote system that allows members to become active agents in guiding the future of the organization.

By becoming a member, you are voting with your food dollars. However, every purchase at the Potluck Food Co-op is about more than dollars and cents. It is about farmers earning a fair wage for their work, taking care of the land, building community, and investing in healthy food that nurtures our bodies.
