Class Instructor Policy

Classes sponsored by Menomonie Market Food Co-op (MMFC) in the MMFC Classroom must agree with our Ends Statement and Values: To be Central to a Thriving, Healthy Community. MMFC offers two class seasons, January-May and September-December. Class schedules are finalized 1 month prior to the start of each class season. The Outreach and Education Coordinator will contact you within 5 days following the submission of your proposal.

The MMFC classroom is an education space, not a forum to promote your business. Your class
should not be contradictory to MMFC’s Ends Statement or values.

  • What MMFC Provides:

    ● Classroom space
    ● Enrollment and collection of fees
    ● Advertisement in our newsletter, The Morsel, social media, in store, Volume One and our
    Weekly email.
    ● Distribution of class evaluations
    ● Class supplies-a list of items being promoted or used is required at least one month
    before the class to ensure the item is fully stocked.

  • Equipment available:

    ● White board and markers
    ● Projector and cables for PC and Mac
    ● Wireless mouse, keyboard, pointer/clicker
    ● Tables and chairs
    ● Refridgerator, sink, 2 cooktops(no cookware)

  • Instructor Payment:

    MMFC determines the fee for all classes, but encourages instructors to offer the class free when
    possible. In the event of a class with a fee, MMFC keeps $20/hour to cover room cost and
    supplies, and the instructor receives the rest. A check is mailed to the instructor within 10 days
    of the class.

  • Food purchased at MMFC is allowed in the classroom. The room should be left in the same
    condition it was found. It is a handicapped accessible space, stairs and an elevator are found in
    the back of the store within the meat department.
  • If there are less than 5 participants registered 24 hours prior to the class, MMFC holds the right to cancel the class.

Deadlines for class proposals:

● November 30th for January-May classes.
● July 31st for September-December classes.
