About Us

Greene Hill Food Co-op 001About Us

We are a food co-operative based in the vicinity of Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Bed Stuy and Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.

We are a 100% working co-op—all members contribute, at least, two hours of work every four weeks. In return, we build a strong sense of community and enjoy prices that are significantly lower than for-profit grocery stores. We are one of three such food co-ops in the US.

It’s basic to our mission as a co-op that we have a positive impact on and relationship with our community in every way possible. With this mission in mind:

  • We value the spirit of cooperation and a democratic process in which each individual has a voice, and each member works to support the Co-op.
  • We strive to offer a range of local, affordable, organic, and sustainable food.
  • 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.
