EATS

EATS (Enough Abundance to Share) is a Co-op program created with a simple premise: Everyone deserves to eat healthy food, regardless of income. 

The Co-op Board of Directors developed EATS to help qualifying member owners offset the cost of whole, local and organic foods with a 15% discount at both Co-op locations. 

Do I Qualify?

Co-op member owners who also participate in Montana Healthy Kids, SNAP (food stamp benefits), Medicaid, Extra Help through Medicare, Section 8 Housing, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Property Tax Assistance Program for low-income Montana seniors or WIC (Women, Infants and Children) are eligible to apply for the EATS (Enough Abundance To Share) program.

The recently expanded EATS programs now include Section 8 Housing, Extra Help through Medicare, Property Tax Assistance Program and SSI, allowing more of our members owners to qualify for this unique, money-saving program. 

EATS is a benefit of membership so you must be a member owner to participate in the program. Non-members, even spouses/partners, may not use the discount unless they join and live in the same home.

How Do I Sign Up?

Members in good standing (either paid in full or current on equity payments) can submit an application to receive a 15% discount for a period of six months with the option to renew every six months as long as they still qualify. Co-op membership is $35/person/lifetime (no annual dues).

The discount is valid in both stores and is tied to your membership—you don’t carry a special card or show anything to your cashier after you’ve signed up.

After six months, EATS participants receive a notice reminding them to renew with Member Services by the first of the month either online or in store.
