Salt & Light’s food co-op is a membership–based food cooperative providing individuals the opportunity to use their skills, talents, gifts, and abilities to provide food for themselves and their families. The co-op serves families and individuals struggling with chronic food insecurity. With their co-op model, participants choose the foods they want to eat, much like shopping in a grocery store. The co-op is open to the public, and anyone is welcome to shop. For those who are unable to use financial resources, co-op credit can be earned by working at any local non-profit in the community. Each participant can earn up to $165 each month to spend in the co-op and/or thrift store.
