    The Moscow Food Co-op
    The Moscow Food Co-op was established in 1973 by friends Rod Davis, Jim Eagan, and Dave and Katie Mosel. We are guided by our 7,700 owners and welcome anyone to shop in our store. We are governed by a democratically elected nine-member Board. Both the story of our Moscow Food Co-op’s past and future are rooted in the cooperative values and principles as expressed through the International Cooperative Alliance. For more than 45 years we have promoted our cooperative identity by being good stewards of the earth and each other. Through providing healthy food, we have created a healthier planet and a stronger, healthier community. We have built our cooperative community based on the recognition that we are stronger together. As noted by the International Cooperative Alliance, "Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others." The Moscow Food Co-op is located at 121 East 5th
    Street in Moscow, Idaho, and is open every day from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
