Like many consumer food co-ops in the United States today, the Great Basin Community Food Co-op began when a few people got together to create a business that would meet a mutual need: to increase community access to affordable, sustainable, and wholesome food that enriches the health of the Northern Nevada’s environment and economy.
In 2005, the GBCFC began as a buyers’ club piggybacking on the natural food orders of sister businesses and relying exclusively on the volunteer efforts of motivated citizens. A small store-front opened on Wonder Street within a year of the initial community meetings. That store-front operated for over a year before moving to a slightly larger location on Plumas in 2008.
Three years later in 2011 we carried out a member-driven fundraising campaign to move the store for a third time into a much larger building in order to better meet the needs of its members. On February 11, 2012 we opened our doors at 240 Court Street in Reno.
Our purpose is to promote our local food system and to serve as a sustainable cooperative model for access to wholesome food. Come visit our co-op, and enjoy the bounty of harvests from our local food shed.
