Food Co-ops

Food co-operatives are a source of many organic, locally grown fruits and vegetables and other nutritious foods.  Owned by their members, not all food co-operatives require you to volunteer.  Nonetheless, becoming an active member of a food co-operative, lets you become involved in a community of people concerned about the source of their food.
