Greene Hill Food Coop
- New York
The Greene Hill Food Co-op is a member-owned-and-operated food co-operative located in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, New York. We are a 100% working —meaning all members contribute two hours of work every four weeks and have equal say in how the Co-op is run: one member, one vote. In return, we are building a strong sense of democracy and enjoy prices that are significantly lower than at for-profit grocery stores. Membership is open to all adults over 18.
We provide affordable, top-quality food primarily to members who live in the neighborhoods of Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights, and Prospect Heights. We currently have approximately 1100 members. Our store is about 2700 square feet. Our store is currently open two days a week, moving to three days in early October.
It’s basic to our mission that we have a positive impact on and relationship with our communit(ies) in every way possible. It’s with this mission in mind, that we have agreed to the following guiding principles:
- We value the spirit of cooperation and a democratic process in which each individual has a voice, and each member works to support the Co-op,
- We strive to offer a range of local, affordable, organic and sustainable food.
- As neighbors, we strive to reflect the community in which we live and we actively work to ensure that the Co-op is accessible to all.
- We seek to develop the Co-op as an ethical entity, using transparent and socially responsible buying and selling practices.
