As We Bring a New Grocery Store to Bethlehem
at 250 E. Broad St.
WE’VE SIGNED OUR LEASE!
On March 12 we announced our new location
at 250 E. Broad St.
JULY 12: Congressman Susan Wild announces $2.9 million grant
to the City of Bethlehem, on the co-op’s behalf.
The Bethlehem Food Co-Op is a group of neighbors working to open a community-owned, full-service grocery store in the north downtown area of Bethlehem. Our store will be open year-round to all shoppers, and will feature reasonably-priced, healthy, nutritious, locally-sourced products. Even now, we are also working to give back to our community – and support it – through educational, environmental, and social justice initiatives.
If this is a good time for you to
consider membership, we would love
to have you join us! Check out our membership options, including an organizational membership, low monthly installment plans of $10 or $25, and full and partial scholarships to cover the membership fee.
We will soon launch a capital campaign to fund our new retail space in north Bethlehem’s downtown area. As we begin this next chapter in our co-op’s journey, we will be asking our members, partners and interested neighbors to support us!
We are now over 965 members strong, and are looking forward to the next exciting steps to make our store a reality!
In March we signed a lease with a developer for a property in the north downtown area of Bethlehem, at 250 E. Broad St.
On October 4 we will hold our Annual Meeting – we’re looking forward to recapping our exciting year of progress!
As an owner, you’ll be part of a local business that aims to:

Provide transparency so you know how your food was produced
Offer good jobs with fair wages
Stimulate the local economy by supporting nearby farmers and producers
Operate a full-service grocery store open to the public
Offer community-focused educational classes
WHAT IS A
Support Your Local Co-Op
A food cooperative (or ‘co-op’) is a grocery store organized as a community-owned enterprise, rather than a private or public company. The decisions regarding its operations are determined by its members.
Our Community Partners
“It takes a village”, as the saying goes, and we are proud to enjoy important partnerships with other community organizations, farmers, retailers and businesses.
