Coos Head Food Co-Op: 50 Years of Growing Community presented by Jamar Ruff

CHM admission: Free for members / $7 for non-members

Online suggested donation: $5 


Jamar Ruff has been a part of the Co-op going on 2 years and has been advocating in our local community going on 4 years. When thinking of the Co-op Jamar thinks of the community. Getting to work alongside small business owners, local producers, and local organizations has truly be amazing. I am originally from a small town by the name of Roberta in South Georgia, I love peach cobblers, good food and a lot of laughs with good company.

Join Jamar Ruff for a walk through Coos Head Food Co-op history, showcasing the cooperative business model along with the different types of cooperatives. Education and creating access for community members have been at the heart of the co-op. We are governed by 7 principles of cooperatives which are influential in everyday operations. We are 100% member owned and supported, however, the co-op is open to everyone in the community. 

*The museum will be open 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM with the talk beginning at 6:30 PM.

**This program will be offered both in person at the Coos History Museum and online. If you would like to participate virtually please register for our Zoom webinar utilizing the link to the left that says “Register for Virtual Program Here” or join us on our Facebook page on the program day:
