Friends Make Everything Better!

The Co-op is growing, and the sooner we can raise 1,000 members, the sooner we can open the store. Who can best recruit new members? Existing members!


When you get a friend to join the Co-op, you’ll be entered into a drawing for whatever campaign incentive (if any) is going on at that time. Past incentives have included tickets to a show at the Gallagher Bluedorn or Oster Regent Theatre, a kayak, a massage, a bicycle, and Community Main Street gift certificates. And if that isn’t enough, here’s the icing on the cake: There’s no limit to how many times you can be entered into the drawing…for each new member who joins, you’ll have an equal number of entries in the drawing.

How does it work?

When you get a friend, co-worker, neighbor…anyone!…to commit to joining the Co-op, just have them add your name to the “How did you hear about the Co-op” section of the membership application. (Or write your own name in that section for them.) Once they turn in their application with payment, you’re entered into the drawing. It’s that easy!

The fine print

To be eligible to be in a drawing, you must be a member of the Cedar Falls Food Co-op and have your name clearly included in the referral section of a membership application. Hard copies and online applications are both eligible. All names submitted in a given campaign period will be entered into a drawing. Previous winners of the drawing are eligible for future drawings. Co-op Board members and their families are not eligible.
