Viroqua Food Co-op is conducting an Owner Survey through April 8, 2016. Your feedback provides valuable information to VFC Management and Board of Directors, helping us to improve store operations and to better serve you. Your participation is voluntary but the more responses we receive, the more accurate the survey. This year’s survey will include questions about VFC expansion plans, yet it is shorter than the one we conducted in 2013. The survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Click here to take the survey. You will need your owner number to access the survey.

If we have a valid email address on file for you, getting to the survey will be easy!  An email was sent on March 22 with a link to take you directly to the survey. If we did not have your email on file, we mailed a postcard with the survey’s online address. Take the postcard and your owner number to the computer nearest you.  If you did NOT recieve an email or a postcardClick here to take the survey. You will need your owner number. If you don't have access to a computer at home, a laptop will be provided here at the Co-op for completing the survey.

Viroqua Food Co-op’s purpose is built around our shared values and needs, and is expressed in our Mission Statement and Ends Policies. Like all cooperatives, we are a democratic organization. The owner survey is one more way for you to let the VFC Board and Managers know if we are meeting your needs. In appreciation for your participation, everyone who completes the survey will automatically be entered into a drawing for a $100 Co-op gift card.

We are working with the Survey Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls to conduct this evaluation, which ensures your anonymity and an unbiased assessment of the data. Your individual responses will not be associated with you, in any way.

The survey is conducted from March 21-April 8. We thank you in advance for your participation and support. Results will be shared in the Pea Soup and on the VFC website. To see the results of our 2013 Owner Survey, visit our publications page and look in the upper left hand corner.
