Is This the Right Fit for Me?
You love being active and on your feet. You’re able to comfortably lift about 15 lbs at a time with your hands and arms to restock and arrange product on the shelves. You take pride in making a space look nice, so you’ve got your eye out for a fallen box of cereal on the shelf when you walk by. You don’t mind taking on the little things that make a big difference, like wiping down a shelf or sweeping up some spilled rice.
About Community Food Club
Walk through the doors of the Community Food Club and you will finds a grocery store stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese, meat and dry goods. Members complete their shopping trip at the checkout lane and receive a receipt that shows the order total and the remaining point balance.
Member households pay $11-$15 for a 30 day membership and are given an allotment of points based on their household size. Point values are assigned to each food item at the Community Food Club and members select the foods that best meet their families needs. Members may shop as often as they wish, up to once per day, until all of their points are used. Dignity and choice are the hallmarks of the Community Food Club model.
What differentiates the Community Food Club from a traditional grocery store? The price! Fruits and vegetables are the lowest priced items in the store while processed foods and snacks are the among the highest. This model helps increase food security in general; providing our members access to fresh produce and other healthy foods.
