Crow Wing Food Co-op’s mission is to be a cooperatively owned grocery store dedicated to sustaining a healthy and thriving community.

Crow Wing Food Co-op was founded in 1979 by a group of like-minded individuals and families that wanted everyday access to healthy, sustainably produced foods. They banded together, sold membership shares, drafted by-laws, drew up articles of incorporation, and opened a storefront.

Thanks to our founding members and committed member-owners, in 2019 Crow Wing Food Co-op is celebrating 40 years of being a community owned, sustainability-minded grocery store in Crow Wing County.
