The Putney Food Co-op was founded in 1941 when fuel shortages due to World War II made it hard to obtain certain grocery items. To procure the needed supplies, a group of Putney citizens led by Carol Brown formed the Putney Food Co-op according to the Cooperative Principles. The cash raised from selling member shares was used to rent a storefront (purchased in 1944), obtain goods, and hire staff members.
The global Cooperative Community has more than 1 billion members, representing 12% of the world’s employed population. All Cooperatives verify their identity when selecting a .coop web address.
