We are a buying club co-op which means that we do not have a store front, but order periodically (every eight weeks) from a natural foods warehouse. We are currently accepting new members. We receive the delivery at a hall in Orion Twp. Members help unload the truck, sort out the products, collect their own orders, clean up the church fellowship hall that we've used, and leave. Our deliveries come during the day on Wednesdays.
Ordering together helps us get volume discounts from the warehouse, allows us to purchase some hard-to-find products, and introduces us to other people interested in a healthy lifestyle.
You may look at our distributor's website to get an idea of what products are available: www.unitedbuyingclubs.com or phone United Natural Foods to request product and price information: 800-323-2131.
The Rochester Food Co-op has a one-time membership fee of $20. If we get a volume discount from UNFI, we are able to return a percentage of the volume discounts to our members, but may have to collect a small markup if the volume discount is not sufficient to cover the co-op's expenses (rental of facility, distributor's fuel surcharge, supplies, etc.).
