Think Globally, Act Locally

The Upper Valley Food Co-op strives to meet the needs of the local community while maintaining reverence for the larger global community. This is a balancing act requiring great participation, compromise and cooperation among humans, ecosystems and associated resources.

You may peruse areas of this website that speak to our Local Commitment. Access our bimonthly newsletter and you will find articles that directly address some of the challenges of “living cleanly” in our world.

Here at the Upper Valley Co-op we take extra care to maintain healthy relationships with our customers, membership, vendors and staff. This means, at the heart of the Co-op, we provide a welcoming and accepting environment for people to find answers to their food questions, while offering a range of sustaining options to fit individual needs and global concerns.

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”
― Herman Melville
