Since 1989, the Allen Avenue UU Church has sponsored a cooperative group of like-minded people to purchase food and other household supplies. We have families of all sizes: singles, empty nesters, and families with children. We focus on ordering products that are organic, sustainably made and when possible, locally sourced. We order from regional wholesalers that also supply stores such as the Portland Food Coop and Lois’ Natural Foods, as well as local farms for meats, poultry and dairy products, produce and much more. Each member contributes a nominal annual fee and a small amount of their time to “make it all work.” Our orders are delivered right here to the church every four weeks.
