We have a versatile Community Room that the public can rent. Use the form below to request a day and time.
The Good Foods Co-op Community Room is available to non-profit groups, community groups or Co-op owners to hold meetings, parties or other events. One-time events as well as ongoing events may be booked. We do not book the room during the week from 11 am – 2 pm and 5 – 7 pm to allow overflow seating for our café. This room may not be used for political or religious gatherings or for anything that conflicts or competes with Good Foods’ business including but not limited to direct marketing, multi-level marketing, wellness products sales or catering.
