We believe that life transformation and growth primarily occur in community and through relationships

What is a Co-op

A membership-based cooperative offering a food market, a gathering place, and optional personal development classes, such as budgeting, cooking and nutrition, and individual coaching for those who qualify. All services are included with membership. 

The Food Market 

LIA Community Co-op members are given points, based on their household size, to redeem for groceries at the market, and can shop as often as they like each month until all points are used. Meats, dairy, fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, shelf-stable food, and some non-food items will all be available at the market. 

Co-op members should expect their monthly membership to assist with at least one week’s worth of groceries a month if all points are used. 

 The THRIVE Community 

The THRIVE Community at the Co-op includes classes in budgeting, as well as cooking and nutrition. One-on-one coaching is also available to those who complete the budgeting class. While you are an active participant in THRIVE classes or coaching, this covers your membership dues and comes with all the perks of membership! 

 The Gathering Place 

A place to gather! Everyone is welcome!  Whether you just need a break and a cup of coffee, need access to a computer and printer, need to talk to someone about community resources, or just need a place to meet a friend or make a new friend; this is the place for you! The Gathering Place is open during Co-op business hours.
