The emphasis of the co-op is on providing sustainable and ethically-traded groceries, supporting local producers in order to help strengthen the food system, and building community around sustainable local food and the sharing of knowledge.
NOWBC is open to members and non-members. There is usually a one-time $20 registration fee charged to new non-member customers, but this fee is currently being waived. Becoming a member requires a $90 investment ($10 per share, to a total of 9 shares), which is put towards expanding the selection offered by the co-op and covering costs associated with the delivery of groceries to customers. Orders are made online each week before the deadline and then shipped to depots in Vancouver, Burnaby, and North Vancouver.
