A community-driven project like the Butte Food Co-Op takes time, dedication, hard work, support, and enthusiasm.
In order to ensure long-term success, the Butte Food Co-Op is working closely with Food Co-Op Initiative (FCI) and following their three-phase development model. This model has a track record of proven success with start up food co-ops when followed.
A general outline of this process is found below. Please note that this is a general timeline. The Butte Food Co-Op must meet each key milestone, but the amount of time it takes to reach each one depends on THE BUTTE COMMUNITY.
