Subdivision Produce Coops Growing in Popularity and Saving Residents Money

Are the residents in your subdivision in saving money on their grocery bills? Then you'll be interested in this success story. (Click on photos to enlarge)

We are a community produce coop that has started from a few friends hoping to save a few dollars to becoming an amazing community wide coop. We have been fortunate that the coops have had wonderful volunteers to help everyone continue saving money. We hope everyone enjoys the experience and please keep in mind this is run by the wonderful volunteers from the group leaders, group members sorting, etc. It is a great way to help others in your community and an opportunity to promote healthy living among our famlies.

The deliveries run every 2 weeks to designated delivery sites throughout the St. Louis area. Check the website for other delivery locations. http://www.communityhelpingscoop.com/.

The deliveries are:

-Lake St. Louis, St Peters, North O’Fallon, Wentzville- Tuesdays every 2 weeks

We love to support local suppliers when possible. Due to our growing seasons here in the Midwest and our desire to eat healthy year round this may force us to adjust our suppliers throughout the year.

We have been able to help many local businesses thrive!
