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

Suggested donation: $5 (or what you are able).*


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. 

*Please consider donating what you can utilizing one of the “DONATE” buttons above or by contacting the museum, so that we can continue to offer programs such as this one. Thank you for your generosity.
