Today's Assignment

What is a Co-op?

A group of people who make a monetary contribution toward a pool of money used to purchase products.

In this case, you contribute $15 . The group uses that money ( along with all the other participants money) to purchase fresh produce in bulk. Because they buy in bulk,they are able to purchase the items at a deep discount. Items are then distributed evenly among participants.

What you get in return: a 50/50 mix of fruits and vegetables which would retail for approximately $50.

No, you do not choose the items that are purchased. You will receive a basket that has a huge variety of local produce that is currently in season.

What do you have to lose? TRY IT!
