Hillsboro Food Co-op is a cooperative grocery store start-up coming to downtown Hillsboro, Oregon. The Co-op became incorporated with the State of Oregon in 2014. Today the Board of Directors continues to be comprised entirely of volunteers who are passionate about bringing a grocery cooperative to downtown Hillsboro. In 2018, after gaining support of over 300 member-owners, the Board expanded to 8 volunteer members. View the Board of Directors. In 2019, after gaining support of over 500 member-owners, the Board began working toward completing a Market Study and launching a Capital Campaign.
The Board is working under the guidance of a national nonprofit consulting firm, Food Co-op Initiative (FCI). The initiative was formed with the specific function of helping startup food cooperatives. Under the model provided by FCI, reaching the 500 member-owner milestone signifies reaching the latter phase of the Feasibility and Planning Stage.
