Did you know...?
POCC is run entirely by volunteers.
Other than a few projects that require very specific knowledge and experience, all functions of the store and demonstration garden are fulfilled by our member-owners without payment for their time and expertise. From one-time or regularly scheduled trips to pick up products (cheese! peanut butter!), to weekly shifts clerking, stocking, and/or receiving, pricing, and shelving deliveries, it takes dozens of people coming together in community to open our doors for you.
What time or talent might you contribute to your co-op?

Who We Are
The Port Orford CommUnity Co-op Board of Directors officially organized the Co-op as an Oregon Cooperative Corporation in November 2012. Once a location was selected, the Co-op opened its doors for business Summer 2013, in conjunction with the Farmer's Market held in the parking lot.
The Co-op has received overwhelming support from the community of Port Orford through donations, memberships, letters to the local papers, and volunteers.
The presence of a local Co-op benefits the Port Orford community by complementing the existing businesses rather than competing with them. The Co-op allows:
• Support of local farmers, thereby contributing to the continuing viability of local farms;
• Dollars circulating within the community;
• Easier access to a wider variety of healthy, organic and natural foods;
• An educational service to the community in regard to healthy living and health-supportive cooking and eating habits;
• A community meeting place for discussions and sharing information about the environment, economic localization, and other topics of concern;
• A financially viable enterprise that contributes to the economic vitality of Port Orford.
