Co-op Governance

Mission Statement
The Dill Pickle Food Co-op offers healthy food choices and the benefits of cooperative practice to build a vibrant local community and more sustainable world. We meet community needs and strengthen area diversity through products, services, and education.

Like others around the world, our co-op adheres to several basic Co-op Principles, which trace their roots back to the first consumer co-op in Rochdale, England.

We are currently an Illinois not-for-profit corporation and are working to re-incorporate under the Illinois Cooperative Law.

Take a look at our Articles of Incorporation and our Bylaws.

Dill Pickle is owned and governed by its members who annually elect a 9-member board of directors to oversee activity and set policy.
