FSN has created a guide explaining how to start and maintain a bulk buying club in your community in Newfoundland and Labrador! A bulk buying club is a group of people with similar food preferences who come together to buy food in bulk. All participants of a bulk buying club are involved in the planning, shopping, sorting, and delivering of food. These clubs enable individuals to work with a group of like-minded people to get more with their food dollars.
Two of my favourite words are community and kitchen. Join the two words and they bring local people together over delicious food! They also become part of the fabric of strong communities: building skills, creating spaces to share knowledge, and promoting healthy active living. FSN created the Community Kitchens Best Practices Toolkit as a resource to connect those two fantastic words together in communities across NL.
