Democratically owned by you, the customer.
Fellow owners, the 2015 Annual Election has concluded. Thanks to all those who participated in our democratic process! Board terms are three years in length, with three out of nine seats set to turn over each year. One additional seat became vacant this year due to early resignation. Per our bylaws, newly elected directors have been assigned terms in accordance with the number of votes received:
Ally Young, Christy Prahl, and Ryan Palma have been elected to 3-year terms, and Mimi Li has been elected to complete the open 1-year term. Please join us in welcoming these fine folks to the Dill Pickle Food Co-op's Board of Directors! Learn more about all nine directors here.
Tuesday November 10, 7-9:30pm at Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, 4046 W Armitage.
DPFC Owners, vote for your Board of Directors! Polls open through November 10. Visit the Annual Election page to learn more.
The search is up: we’re super-excited to announce our future home at 2746 N Milwaukee! 10,000 sq. ft. = full-service grocery + deli + beer&wine + community room. That means 35 new living-wage jobs, more dollars to local producers, and a growing capacity to meet our cooperative mission. Many many thanks for your continued support... stay tuned for project updates!

Meetings are open to all owners, and board candidates are especially encouraged to attend the October 19 meeting.
