Global Ends

At the Onion River Co-op, we call our Mission Statement the Global Ends.

The Global Ends embraces:

Results: The difference the Co-op will make in the lives of consumers.

Recipients: The identity of those who will receive those results.

Cost: The expense and worth of adhering those results.

Global Ends

The Onion River Co-op will be central to a thriving and healthy community, where:

  • Consumers have local access to progressive environmental, social, and healthful choices;

  • Residents enjoy an enhanced quality of life;

  • The local food system is strengthened;

  • The cooperative model is supported; and

  • Our owners have a sense of pride in their cooperative.

The Co-op works to support its Global Ends by implementing a variety of community outreach projects. Our goal is to provide low-income consumers with access to progressive, social, and healthful choices through education and outreach and to specifically reduce childhood hunger in Burlington.
