“Bloomingfoods is making great strides in making ownership and membership more available to people,” explains Grace Beilfield, an Indiana University junior and worker at Bloomington’s own co-op, Bloomingfoods. “For example, there are reduced rates for those customers that are eligible for EBT snack benefits as well as WIC benefits. The other one is democratic owner control, so as an owner of the co-op you’re allowed to vote in yearly elections to decide who serves board of the co-op and your voice will also be heard in terms of opening new stores.”
