As a member of Biobulkbende, you have access to high-quality organic food, straight from the producers and / or distributors, at much lower prices than in the supermarket. In return, you pay a membership fee of 15 euros and contribute a bit of your time and energy each month (3h ±) to keep our co-op running. As a member of the co-op you have a say in how the co-op works, how decisions are made and what direction we take together.
A work group is a group of members who work together and are responsible for a specific need of our food co-op. Some examples of work groups are cooking, set-up, membership, orders, finance, etc. As a member of our food co-op, joining a work group is a requirement. When you join, we help you pick what work group matches your interests, as well as what matches the needs of the co-op. Members can change work groups when their interests change.
Ordering food is easy. We use a free software called Foodsoft . As soon as you become a member you can place your first order, yay! Together we order in dry-food (from toothpaste to pasta) in bulk packaging. Fresh food doesn't have to be in bulk. We also have items that are popular, like oats, in stock to save of costs and plastic! Payment is done during pick-up day through banktransfer or pin.
Every 1st Monday of the month, from 18:00 - 20:00 our co-op comes together to pick up our fresh, local and bulky orders. The pick-up day is more then just picking up your order. It's also a chance to meet other members and have an affordable vegan dinner cooked by our members. During the pick-up day we have an introduction for people interested to join the co-op. This takes place at 7pm sharp.
Attending the introduction is mandatory so that you learn all the ins and outs of the co-op right from the start. After you have joined the introduction you can become a member. The membership work group will send an email to you shortly after. Please check your spam folder or whitelist @biobulkbende.org in your email client to ensure you see the emails from us.
