As we were transitioning into this vegan life, we are fortunate enough to have our local buying club offer organic produce each month at an amazing rate. We get 10+ pounds of organic produce for only $15. Since going vegan, we now get 3 boxes a month and may even get 4 once summer months come. This has provided my family fantastic organic produce which has saved us lots of money and time.
There are many food buying clubs out there that you might be able to take advantage of in your area. I know not all have organic produce to offer, but groceries in general are cheaper when bought in huge quantities and divided among those that are ordering. Here is a list of other food buying clubs that may help you out if you live in any of these states:
Angel Food Ministries
Serving many states within the United States
SHARE Food Program of Pennsylvania
Serving Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Metro New York, Maryland East Shore
SHARE Hampton Roads
There are probably many more out there, just do a search for food buying club in your state and see what comes up. Hopefully this will help some of you save money for yourself and others.
Here are some pictures of 2 boxes of produce we got a few months back to give you an idea of what comes in our boxes. The only thing that stinks about the boxes is you never know what you will get, so it is a surprise each time. But we have never been disappointed over the past 5 years of buying.
