Cornerstone Co-op

Owners Build Better Business

We believe in the power of people coming together for a common cause. Co-ops were built upon the concept of collective power, knowing that when you multiply a single dollar by thousands you can create the resources to build something better, knowing that collectively we can do more, and when thousands of people come together the impact of a single individual is multiplied. There is nothing quite like a co-op.

Bags For Breakfast

An innovative program developed by Your Cornerstone Co-op, Bags For Breakfast donates $0.03 from every cloth reusable bag used in any one of our 6 Food Stores.  This money is used to fund healthy breakfasts for school children throughout our region, and in 2017 we were awarded the CRS Excellence in Sustainability, in part, because of this program!
