Why Order Food in Bulk?

It is such a great feeling to know that you have good food stored away. When you need a scoop of organic oats or sunflower seeds or flour for your favourite recipe, you don't need to drive to the store. It is on hand and ready to use.

This is one of the benefits the Potluck Food Co-op is proud to offer to our members. The opportunity to regularly re-stock your pantry with organic and/or local food.

The online store is always open. Just head on over and click through the online store. Choose from our extensive bulk food choices, order up a selection of fresh organic fruits or vegetables, or find something from our hardworking, local suppliers. Deliveries are planned for the last Saturday of every month.

Membership - It is Your Co-op!

Lifetime membership in the Potluck Co-op costs $250. You can also now purchase an annual membership for $25.00 per calendar year.

Foodbank Donation?

Could you order a little extra for people in need? The Whitehorse Food Bank is an amazing organization that is generously letting us use their space for sorting and distribution and we want to give back!
When you place your order, think ahead and order something extra to donate to the Food Bank. Or, when you come to pick up your order, leave a few bottles or boxes from the case you are taking home for people in need. (And get a tax receipt next April 1st.)

Marianne: Thanks for the reminder to sell extra stuff! I bought a 25lb bag of organic wheat bran because it was so much cheaper, but that's an insane amount, even with homemade granola and muffins! I can sell gallon ziplock bags of organic wheat bran for $3 each. (I live in Riverdale.)
