Good Friday! A New Food Co-Op in Delray Run by Boys & Girls’ Club

March 5th, 2010 · 1 Comment

The West Palm Beach co-op model is copied in Delray Beach

On Saturday, residents in South Palm Beach County will get their own food co-op – a helping hand to get fresh fruits and vegetables and other staples at a deep discount. The Rise and Shine Food Co-Op in Delray Beach is a project run by a grant to the Boys & Girls Club, Palm Beach County, from the Quantum Foundation.

Twice monthly, residents who sign up receive three bags of fresh produce, bread, and household staples for $30.

There is no restriction on who is eligible. 

Read all about it in my story in the Broward New Times. 

What: Rise and Shine Food Co-Op Kick-off

Where: Naoma Donnelly Boys and Girls Club, 1451 S.W. Seventh St., Delray Beach

When: 8 a.m. Saturday, March 6

Cost: $30 a month to participate, plus a one-time $10 administrative fee

Details: Must order in advance by noon Friday, March 5; hereafter, on the Thursday before delivery, which is the first and third Saturdays of every month.
