Today I am doing our second run of our office group Grocery Co-Op.

You're probably wondering what is is, right?

Well, what I've done is start an office co-op where everyone who participates pays $20, and then I take the money to the downtown grocers district and buy some fresh produce at wholesale restaurant prices.

Not only is it a great way to save tons of money, but I do not buy any meat, just produce.  So we're not only creating a healthy channel for good food, but we're saving that many more animals from being subject to abuse of the commercialized slaughtering of animals.

Everyone brings in their re-usable grocery bags and we divide up everything equally.  You get so much food for that $20 that alot of people in our office split it between two people and they each pay $20.

Some of the items we get include Avocados, Spinach, Apples, Broccoli, Zucchini, Cucumbers, Cashews, Almonds, Bell Peppers, and much more.

An example of pricing:  when bought by the case, we get extra-large Haas Avacados for about $.25 cents each

For each run, I send a survey of what everyone likes the best through my iContact website, and then that survey is followed by a PayPal link for everyone to pay via PayPal.  So the whole process is automated through iContact and PayPal.

For those of you that are interested, you really should look into starting a co-op like this in your area.  If you have any questions about how I got it up and running, give me a shout.
