Bulk Buying (on-going)
The Britannia Bulk Buying Group is responding to the rising cost of food through direct wholesale purchase of produce, saving up to 45% less than retail. The idea is simple. Once a month fresh produce is ordered and a volunteer from the group picks it up and takes it back to Britannia where group members help sort the food into individual bags.
- Currently there are two groups of 30 households each participating. The smallish size keeps the overall administration and work relatively easy.
- All group members are struggling on a tight budget.
- Cost for the food box is $14 for conventional fruits and veggies. A typical box will contain about 12 different items.
- We buy locally when we can.
Contact us if you are interested in participating.
