About Us

Strengthening our Foodshed

The Hopi Food Co-op was formed in 2013 by local families, individuals, and youth who are passionate about supporting our foodshed.  

We are a community-owned co-op, we share responsibility and leadership to offer opportunities for our members to access local food while sharing and learning food knowledge from one another to increase local, healthy food sources for our community.
