Bushwick Food Coop Mission Statement

green_tomatoesThe Bushwick Food Coop is a member-owned cooperative grocery store that works to increase access to affordable, healthy, and responsibly-produced food in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and surrounding  neighborhoods. We are a true cooperative, democratically operated by our members. As a socially and environmentally-responsible  organization,  we strive to work with farms and businesses that are local, sustainable, fair-trade, organic and ethical, and to minimize the amount of waste we create by recycling and using products made from recycled materials. We believe that bringing our neighborhood together around good food can strengthen community bonds, promote economic and cultural diversity, and increase overall health in Bushwick.
