Get Involved!

Join the Bushwick Food Coop, attend meetings, or volunteer for the community.

CHECK FOR AVAILABLE COMMITTEE WORK HERE.  Each Committee has its own tab.

Please contact if you’re interested in distribution day shifts.


Pick up a leadership position!  Help grow yourself and the community.
  • Have a unique talent you want to contribute?  Or want responsibility of a smaller role?  There are many smaller and still crucial positions on committees that need filling.
  • All hours contributed to the Bushwick Food Coop count toward the 4 hr/4 wk work requirement.  Hours can be banked toward future time off.
  • We expect leaders to self motivate to prioritize, initiate, collaborate, communicate and mobilize toward their role’s goals.
  • To discuss leadership opportunities within the coop, please email the General Coordinator or call 650.575.5929 in the evenings.
