Everyone deserves access to healthy food.


The Good Harbor Hill Scholarship and the Good Harbor Hill Discount

To become an owner at the Cook County Whole Foods Co-op, everyone must pay the one-time cost of $120. It can be paid in 10 quarterly payments of $12 dollars, but this might seem out of reach for some. We understand, and the Good Harbor Hill Scholarship is our response. With the GHH Scholarship, you can become an owner in a manner you can afford today.

We also offer the GHH Discount to all qualifying Co-op owners: a 10% discount off most purchases* every time eligible owners shop.

Applying for these programs is easy and confidential. You can apply online or pick up an application at the Co-op information desk. Owners participating in one or more of the following programs qualify for the scholarship and discount:

  • • SNAP/EBT
  • • Emergency Assistance Program
  • • Medicaid
  • • Social Security Disability
  • • Section 8 Housing
  • • WIC

We do not need to see proof of participation in these programs, but we will ask you to reapply annually for the discount, to ensure that you still qualify.

*Purchases exclude co+op basics, co+op deals and special orders.
