A food cooperative for Hungerford?

Hungerford Environmental Action Team

The possibility of a Hungerford community food cooperative is to be discussed in an open meeting at The Croft Hall on October 14th (Tuesday) at 8.00pm organised by HEAT (Hungerford Environmental Action Team).

A community run food co-ops would pool all the members’ buying power to order food in bulk and direct from the main suppliers at much better prices than normal retail.

There is a community co-op called True Food Community in Reading and a speaker from that organisation will make a presentation to the meeting.

Typical food buying co-ops either place but produce based on pre-orders from members or, alternatively, buy in bulk for the best prices and then sell on to members via stalls, box schemes.
