There are around 300 community food co-ops running across Wales from places such as schools, community centres, church halls, workplaces and many other different venues.
As well as helping you eat more healthily, you can also save money by using your local food co-op. On average a regular customer saves around £220 a year! As well as selling fruit and vegetables, many also offer additional produce such as eggs, meat, fish or bread. Many are linked to other community activities such as parent and toddler groups, community cafes and social groups, offering the chance to socialise and meet new people.
A food co-op is a fun way to buy your fresh fruit and vegetables as well as being good value, healthy and sustainable. It's an affordable alternative to the supermarkets and money spent though a food co-op is re-invested into the local community plus there is less waste, less packaging and fewer food miles which has to be good news.
