Business Partner Program
The Moscow Food Co-op Local Business Partner Program strengthens the connection between our owners and local businesses and helps build the local economy. Local business partners from all kinds of sectors, including childcare, farming, and wellness services, offer discounts to Co-op owners. At the same time, our local partners benefit from our owners' patronage and are promoted by the Co-op.
This relationship helps keep dollars and jobs local. The program includes locally owned businesses in the Quad City area (Moscow, Pullman, Clarkston, Lewiston), Latah or Whitman counties, and surrounding communities.

That principle states: “Co-operatives are open to all persons able to use their services without gender, sexual orientation, physical handicap, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.”
