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 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 coops 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.
