The Food Co-op

From time to time I've read about communities that have a food co-op. I've often wondered if Salt Lake would be fortunate enough to have a food co-op. We have a killer Farmers Market but I hadn't ever heard of any food co-ops.

Fortunately I saw a news story on rising food prices about a month ago that highlighted a local food co-op. The Community Food Co-op of Utah is a non-profit committed to bringing members of the community food at reasonable prices. You place an order once a month to get monthly deliveries. Yes it isn't necessarily enough food to cover all we'll need for a month but it's a good start and will definitely save us some coin. We get our first delivery this Saturday so I'll let everyone know how it goes.
