Article of the Month: What is a Food Co-op?
Food co-ops are mainly very small grocery stores and possibly the most typical sort of cooperative. They're owned and managed by a group of people in the community which often includes local farmers.
Usually food co-ops sell natural and organic foods that are in season. Over the past few years more people have come to comprehend the advantages of organic food and the demand has increased. Food co-ops are a fantastic selection for shoppers that need to find organic food at less costly prices.
You can become a member of a food co-op by paying a membership fee which provides you all the benefits and features of being a member of the co-op. The membership fee varies with respect to the co-op but it will be set low enough to allow its members to recover the cost through the reasonable food prices. Membership in a food co-op also allows you to have a say in how the co-op is monitored.
The members of a co-op are equal members and make the decisions pertaining to what kinds of food their co-op will carry and sell to the co-op members and the community. This enables everyone to feel like they are contributing equally. It also encourages democracy and community togetherness because members need to come together and combine their resources to be a success.
If you need organic food and products at a bargain price and also assist your community then you should look into joining your local food co-op. It's a great way to get to know members of your community and become interested in helping your community have great food at good prices.
