How to Participate
Our Membership is at the heart of Honest Weight Food Co-op.
Everyone who joins Honest Weight owns a share of the Co-op. Shareholders have the opportunity to participate in the Co-op's community by lending a hand in the store as Member-Owners. We’d love your help.
There are many ways that you can participate at Honest Weight.
- Join the Co-op. Not only will you own a share of the number one community-owned food store in the Capital District, you'll receive a discount on all your favorite Co-op products. In addition, by completing orientation and becoming a Member-Owner, you can attend Co-op meetings and vote in elections.
- Offer your time and skills. Member-Owners are critical to Honest Weight. The Co-op always needs help, both in the store and outside with community outreach programs. Once you attend an orientation to become a Member-Owner, you're eligible to assist Honest Weight in support of the store and its mission. There's no better way to appreciate the value of your investment and your membership in the Co-op community than taking an active role in running the store you own.

- Share your expertise. Co-op committees help run our store and maintain our presence in the community. We are always looking for active, involved committee members who have real-life experience and talent that could benefit Honest Weight.
- Keep the Co-op honest. The purpose of our Governance Review Council (GRC) is to nurture strong, democratic and cooperative processes here at Honest Weight. Reviewing policies and procedures, along with the Co-op Bylaws, the GRC helps Honest Weight follow its mission. All Member-Owners are encouraged to run for election to the GRC.
