The Phoenix Food Co-op is a local, startup, all volunteer organization working to organize and build a community, member-owned, brick-and-mortar grocery cooperative in Phoenix. The Co-op has several dozen members and, as of May 2020, raised enough capital through community-based crowdfunding to begin ordering and distributing produce from local farmers to its members as a buyers club.
