What is Bread and Roses Food Coop?

Bread & Roses Food Cooperative is a member-worker, owned, operated, and managed nonprofit grocery store located at 915 Railroad Avenue, Tallahassee Fl 32310.

We are organized on the principle of Mutual Aid: collective participation and the equal distribution of responsibilities and benefits. We are unique in that we are an organization of the people, for the people and by the people of the Tallahassee Community. Participation in Bread & Roses is distributed evenly: each member of the Cooperative agrees to work a few hours each month (approximately 3 hours once every 4 weeks). In turn, the money saved by reducing overhead expenditures through collective effort drastically lowers the cost of groceries (an approximate average savings of 40% on all groceries for all members). Non-members are welcome to shop at Bread & Roses but will not benefit from the reduced member prices, and will be charged standard retail prices.

Our Goals:

  • Enrich the Tallahassee Community.
  • Broaden access to quality, healthy and organic foods.
  • Minimize our carbon footprint.
  • Maintain a vibrant democracy through non-hierarchical, egalitarian decision making processes.
  • Full inclusion of any person willing to participate regardless of class, race, gender, age or sexual preference.

Our Core Values:

  • Mutual Aid.
  • Providing local, organic, and healthy foods.
  • Environmental sustainability.
  • Transparency and openness.
  • Social Justice.
