We all work a little and get a lot
We are a food co-operative based in Brooklyn, New York, serving the communities of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, and beyond.
We are a 100% working co-op — all member-owners contribute, at least two and a half hours of work every four weeks (13 times a year). In return, we gain a strong sense of community and enjoy prices that are significantly lower than for-profit grocery stores. We are one of only a few such food co-ops in the U.S., all located in Brooklyn, the largest being the Park Slope Food Coop.
Our mission is to have a positive impact on our community in every way possible.
We value the spirit of democratic cooperation in which each individual has a voice, and each member-owner works to support the Co-op. We strive to offer a range of local, affordable, organic, and sustainable food and household products. As neighbors, we strive to reflect the community in which we live, and we actively work to ensure that the Co-op is accessible to all. We seek to develop the Co-op as an ethical entity, using transparent and socially responsible buying and selling practices.
