Crow Wing Food Co-op Deli & Expansion Project

This campaign is about hope, resiliency, cooperation, and sustainability for the Brainerd Lakes Area. Your support will help Crow Wing Food Co-op relocate, expand, and finally build the deli and smoothie bar we have long dreamed of bringing  to our community.
But this campaign is bigger than smoothies and sandwiches.

This is about creating a cooperatively owned food and community focused hub in the heart of Downtown Brainerd.
Founded in 1979 (we’re one of the longest-running food co-ops in MN!), Crow Wing Food Co-op is a cooperatively owned
grocery store dedicated to sustaining a healthy and thriving community.

With your support last year, Crow Wing Food Co-op won the 2019 Destination Downtown Business Challenge, sponsored
by the Brainerd Lakes Chamber of Commerce.

Now we are ready to relocate and open a larger food co-op in Downtown Brainerd. From 900 square feet to roughly 4,000,
your contribution will help us make this vision a reality.
Make a donation today and you help us bring a deli, smoothie bar, and expanded Crow Wing Food Co-op full of
healthy, delicious, quick food options into the heart of Downtown Brainerd.

This is an investment in Crow Wing Food Co-op, but it's also an investment in Downtown Brainerd, and in the health and
sustainability of our community.

We can’t wait to plan fun events with the Destination Downtown Brainerd Business Coalition. Think street fairs, farmers' markets, harvest festivals, and so much more. We want to help bring renewed energy to our historic downtown square.
Crow Wing Food Co-op is open to everyone. Anyone can become a member-owner (start a new lifetime family membership with as little as $10.00 down!), and anyone can shop here (member or not!). We welcome everyone.

Become a new member-owner with as little as $10.00 donated now and dues will be credited toward your LIFETIME family
membership. Membership is $150.00 for a LIFETIME membership; there are no annual dues. Donate $10.00 or more now and you
launch a new family membership, and you can pay more toward that membership as you're able.

Become a new member-owner TODAY and you get to help own and run your local grocery store. How cool is that?!

Construction at 624 Laurel Street is underway, NOW. Your support will help us purchase deli equipment and finish the
expansion project to open the new storefront AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

Thank you for believing in this vision for our Co-op and our community!
