We’re a network of food producers and consumers, working together in a not-for-profit workers co-op to build a new sort of food system, one based on fairness and balance. Everyone contributes, everyone benefits.
The Food Hub is more like a club than a shop. When you order through us, you are buying from the producers, using us as a delivery system. The workers co-op acts as a bulk-buy club, as well – we buy many of the dry goods and things like olive oil in bulk from ethical sources (usually other co-ops!) and sells members a small quantity on demand. That’s where we make most of the running costs of the hub: we put a bigger mark-up on these items, and that means that we only need to take 12.5% from local producers.
