Connection Credit Union

One Good Co-op Deserves Another

As a Connection Credit Union member you understand the value of keeping your money right here, in Kitsap County. Imagine if the money you spend on groceries could stick around for the benefit of Kitsap too!

The Kitsap Community Food Co-op is preparing to open a small, community-owned store in downtown Bremerton (421 Park Ave) to create year-round access to local, nutritious, and natural food. The cooperative is a grocery store owned by, and operated for, the benefit of the community it serves –not a giant, conglomerate corporation. By sourcing as locally as possible, creating good jobs, strengthening local food access, and sharing profits with its members, a food co-op keeps food money circulating in the local economy, instead of heading straight out of it.

The best way to support this local food movement is to join the food Co-op as a founding Member-Owner. A lifetime household ownership share is just $200.  Learn more and join today at www.kitsapfood.coop.

We know local is better for financial services. We think it’s better for food as well, which is why your credit union is supporting this effort with a “One Good Co-Op Deserves Another” promotion:

  • Refinance a loan you have somewhere else with Connection Credit Union and well match your rate and term PLUS give you a rebate of 1.5% of the loan amount, minus $25 which will be donated to the Kitsap Community Food Co-op expansion fund.  Apply here or at any branch.  Some restrictions apply.*
  • We are sponsoring a limited number of Kitsap Community Food Co-op lifetime ownership shares ($200 each) until June 30th 2019*. Simply submit your request to connectioncu@connectioncu.org and answer the question – how would a food co-op membership benefit me and my family?
