The Seneca Nation with the Community Planning & Development Department is investigating the potential for establishing a Healthy Foods Co-op on the Cattaraugus Territory. Healthy foods are being defined as non-processed foods.
A food cooperative or food co-op is a food distribution outlet organized as a cooperative. Food cooperatives are usually consumers' cooperatives where the decisions regarding the production and distribution of its food are chosen by its members. Basically, a food co-op is a grocery store owned by the people who shop there. You don’t have to be a member to shop there but members do get price discounts and other benefits.
We would like to learn more about how you currently shop for food for yourself, your family and your interest in shopping in, and being member of the Healthy Foods Co-op.
Those who complete the survey will be entered in a drawing for one of four $100 Seneca One Stop Gas Cards. To be eligible for the drawing you must include your name, address and telephone number at the end of this survey. Please note that only one survey is eligible per household for the drawing, and only one $100 gift card can be awarded per household.
