How we started

The Oshkosh Food Co-op (OFC) was incorporated as a not-for-profit co-op in 2013 with the goal of creating a member-owned, full-service grocery store in Oshkosh’s central city. The Mission of OFC is to provide a thriving, member-owned, full-service grocery store in the heart of the city. Our vision is: “Strengthen local economies, promote health, and build communities.” We organize our cooperative around four key values:

  • Community: We are rooted in our community; owned by our community; and we reinvest in our community.
  • Sustainability: We consider the impact of our decisions on today and tomorrow.
  • Accountability: We are accountable to each other, our producers, and our cooperative community. 
  • Courage: We commit to creating, producing, and living boldly.
