It’s that time again for the members of the Yelm Food Cooperative to review how our store has been doing and where it’s going in the future.

 Due to Covid-19 regulations we won’t be having an official meeting. Instead we will have a display in the member center where you can vote for our new director, check out the bulletin board display and find paperwork showing what’s taken place financially over the past year.

 All paid up members are eligible and encouraged to vote to vote for the Director who is standing for election:

                             Carlo Giorno – Director at large

 This is a chance to make your voice heard – it’s your Co-op!

 We look forward to seeing you there.

 The Directors of the Yelm Food Cooperative

 * Paid up members: original YFC members, new members who have paid at least the first $25 of the $100 lifetime membership fee and other members whose membership fee is current. If in doubt as to your status, check with

Happy Birthday Yelm Food Co-op

Happy Birthday Yelm Food Co-op

April 27th, 2007 we opened our little store in Yelm and

 13 years

later we’re still here!

We began at the Frontier Plaza on Mosman and 1st Street operating there until April 2012 when we moved to Yelm Ave, co-locating with Gordon’s Garden Center where you find us today.

A huge shout out to all our wonderful members, Working Members, volunteers, staff, board members, committee members  and all the other customers who have supported this dream of a member owned grocery store, the Yelm Food Co-op!

We will have a belated celebration in the store when we can do samples and stand close to each other again!

Without you this would not have been possible!

Here’s where we came from:
