Welcome to the Bay Ridge Food Co-op
We, your neighbors and friends, have formed a cooperative to serve the residents of Bay Ridge and other nearby neighborhoods. Everyone is welcome to join us in our work to bring this valuable new resource to the area.
Owned and operated by its members, the co-op is currently functioning as a buying club, distributing food out of the First Evangelical Free Church on Sixth Avenue and 65th St. We distribute fresh organic and conventional produce and shelf-stable items, locally sourced where possible, approximately twice a month. We welcome you to visit us and to shop up to three times before joining as a member.
As our membership grows, our plan is to open a market that will seek to provide high-quality, wholesome food at an affordable cost. The store will create easy access to locally grown and organic foods, as well as a wider and more interesting range of delicious products than options currently available in the neighborhood. A fully-functioning Bay Ridge Food Co-op will also provide significant savings on your weekly shopping bill. Since we'll be run by our members for our members, with everyone contributing work hours, we'll be able to pass on the savings to you - making your money go a whole lot further!
However, the Bay Ridge Food Co-op simply won't exist without YOU! We have a core group of incredibly dedicated volunteers, but we need you to join us today. You'll be able to play a critical part in shaping this exciting new venture for our community.
