Sunshine Food Co-Op

The Sunshine Food Co-Op is a natural foods buying club based in and around the Annapolis/Broadneck area of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, USA. Basically, we're a group which orders a pallet of grocery stuff from a distributor every 4 weeks. A very wide selection of products is available, including grocery items, refrigerated and frozen foods, nutritional supplements and some other things (cleaning supplies, personal care products, etc). The emphasis is on "natural" products including many organic items and products used by those on special diets. We buy in bulk, so most products are bought by the case or bulk bag, but members often split cases. We receive a volume discount from the distributor; a small part of this is retained by the co-op to cover organizational costs.
