Park Slope Food Cooperative

The Park Slope Food Cooperative (PSFC) is a member owned and operated food store. The founders of the PSFC advertise the store as an alternative option to other grocery stores that are over commercialized and only care about profit. To become a member, one pays a joining fee of $25 and then must regularly donate their time to the store to stay a member.[1] The PSFC strives to get its animal products in a non-cruel manner that does not “exploit” the animal. The PSFC does its best to provide organic food while avoiding racism when sourcing such items. It also tries to find a balance between meeting the needs of those who are hungry while also addressing climate change.[2]
