Park Slope Food Co-op

The Park Slope Food Coop, located in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, was founded in 1973 by a small group of committed neighbors. Today the co-op has more than 15,500 members. Unlike many co-ops where paying a fee is sufficient to become a member, members at Park Slope must commit to doing a workshift (there are some exceptions to this work policy for hardship cases) every four weeks in exchange for a 20-40% savings on groceries. The co-op estimates that this form of work exchange means that members do 75% of all co-op labor.
