The Silver City Food Co-op (SCFC), in Silver City, NM is seeking a General Manager to run its grocery store. SCFC has been a successful food cooperative for over 40 years, providing organic, local, and health-promoting products to all county residents.

SCFC is a member of National Cooperative Grocers and has a seven member board of directors. SCFC is entering an exciting period of expansion as the business has outgrown its main street storefront.
