We are at 833 members of our 1000 member goal by store opening.
Our store (under renovation) is located at 1253 Lafayette Ave in 12 Points in Terre Haute.
Who are we?
Terre Foods Cooperative Market is a member-owned, whole foods grocery store forming in Terre Haute, Indiana. We will be a full service grocery store, open seven days a week at, that will serve Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley community by providing access to local, organic whole foods and products at a fair price.
The group forming Terre Foods is made up of people who value good food as well as fostering a strong, sustainable community. We believe so strongly in the benefits of a cooperative grocery store that many of us have become member-owners before the storefront has opened. The best ways that you can help make this market a reality are becoming a member and telling others about our venture. Once our doors are open, everyone, members and non-members alike, will be able to shop at a place that focuses on quality and building community.
We're looking to hire someone to coordinate our upcoming capital campaign. The job pays $750/week, half-time, for 10-14 weeks.
The Capital Campaign Coordinator provides administrative and project management expertise to support Terre Foods Cooperative’s Capital Campaign. The Coordinator guides the overall campaign — both the planning and implementation — and reports to the Capital Campaign Committee Chair. The Coordinator will facilitate and organize the process from beginning to end, providing direction, support, and encouragement to other members of the campaign team. The Coordinator utilizes exceptional organizational and data management skills to coordinate campaign activities, manage prospect lists, schedule, confirm, and prepare for meetings and events, and ensure accurate and prompt gift and loan acknowledgment and tracking. The Coordinator will regularly interact with donors, lenders and volunteers in person, by phone, and in writing. The Coordinator is responsible for organizing the strategy and approach to pursue large gifts and loans (for example, gifts and loans over $20,000). Being the Coordinator requires good communication and delegation skills.
I recently moved from Austin, TX to Terre Haute, IN and love everything about this community: the people are nice and inviting; it's affordable and easy to get around; and it's so close to many other exciting communities like Indianapolis and Chicago. The only thing I'm missing about Austin, besides a few friends, is my food co-op. Belonging to a co-op is more than just the opportunity to purchase organic and natural foods, it's a chance to be a part of a community of people working to make Terre Haute, and the world, a better place.

Lookout Farm is a local producer of hay, beans, wheat, corn and Alpacas and Alpaca products. We also raise chickens, herbs, vegetables and eggs for sale. We welcome the organization of the new co-op market, and intend to support it by supplying quality food products for sale to customers interested in natural food products. We feel that this new venture will serve a much-needed place in our community.
