Kensington Community Food Co-op

There are 571 of our neighbors who have become member-owners of Kensington Community Food Co-op (some of them include you!) and that number is increasing weekly.

One of the benefits of being a member-owner is getting great discounts at over 40 shops, cafes, and other services throughout the community through the ShopLocal program. Another unique membership benefit is being able to invest further in this local business and your community by making a loan to assist in opening a member-owned grocery store in your neighborhood.

If you would like to become a member-owner, go to or email email for more information. If you are interested in volunteering with KCFC, email Holly Logan at
