About Us / La Montanita Co-op (Gallup) History: La MontaÃ±ita Co-op, formed in 1976, is a community-owned grocery storeand a regional food distribution center focused on the shared benefits ofhealthy food, sound environmental practices, and a strong local economy.With six locations in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Gallup, we provide over13,000 member/owners and thousands of community members the widestselection of local food available in Central New Mexico.Â We care aboutgood food, thatâ??s why we go above and beyond to help support andpromote our local producers. In addition to purchasing products in everydepartment of our grocery stores from New Mexico farmers, ranchers, andchefs, we also help these producers get their goods to other co-ops in NewMexico through our Cooperative Distribution Center(www.coopdistribution.coop). Our La MontaÃ±ita Fund providesmember-financed loans to small-scale food producers and other co-ops withflexible terms and low interest rates.Â Because we canâ??t grow itall in New Mexico, we do our best to responsibly source all the products weoffer, including a wide selection of organic, fair trade, and GMO freeitems throughout our stores. We strive to make good information availableabout the products we carry and the way we do business. Find co-opresources, member information, recipes, literature, and a monthlynewsletter chock full of good information at ourwebsiteÂ www.lamontnaita.coop.Â We value and encourage memberparticipation in the community, because we recognize that good food and astrong local economy is a group effort. Through our member participationprogram over 150 co-op members give their time to 60 community-basednon-profit organizations throughout the year. Their hours of service helpthese organizations do their good work, but it also translates to discountsfor the members who do the work. In other words, through our memberparticipation program, we make food more affordable and build capacity inour community.Â An economic alternative for a sustainable future, LaMontaÃ±ita Co-op is fresh, fair, local.
