Board Elections

Voting will kick off at the Annual Meeting on April 18th, and will continue online and in the store through Thursday, April 28th. If you have any questions, please email board@portlandfood.coop.

In order to vote in our Board Elections, you must: a) be a Member-Owner of the Co-op, b) be in good standing (equity payments up-to-date) as of 8pm on March 29th, and c) have shopped at the Co-op between March 29, 2016 and March 29, 2017.

We operate under the principle of “one Member-Owner, one vote.” Only the listed Member-Owner gets to vote — household members who use a Member-Owner’s account for purchasing privileges are not eligible to vote.
