Matt Fuxan of the Boise Co-op shares his passion for community and connections

When he's not chasing his little ones, he's chasing after high-quality, natural and organic foods and products for the Boise Co-op. Meet Matt Fuxan, Store Manager at the Boise Co-op North End, cares about the co-op's positive impact on the Boise community. 

"It's making great food from scratch, supporting local producers and farmers, knowing our shoppers and having genuine connections with them. And a million other reasons," shared Matt.

The Boise Co-op is a community-owned food cooperative and marketplace that educates and connects the community to quality foods and specialty products. Although the co-op is more than 40 years old, it is still focused on fresh and homegrown products. Since 1973, they have grown into a community of more than 24,000 co-owners that desire nutritious, great-tasting food at a reasonable price. With departments like produce, cheese, beer and wine, pet, and meat and seafood, you can find a variety of items in just one visit.
