Bulk Buying Best Practices Tool Kit


This toolkit is designed to assist community groups who want to start a bulk buying club in their community.


What is a Bulk Buying Club?

A bulk buying club is a group of people with similar food preferences who come together to buy food in bulk. All participants of a bulk buying club are involved in the planning, shopping, sorting, and delivering of food. These clubs enable individuals to work with a group of like-minded people to get more with their food dollars.

All Bulk Buying Clubs have the same underlying purpose: to provide nutritious food at a lower cost for a group of people.

Britannia Warm Plates Community Kitchen


Join Britannia elders in a new drop-in community kitchen project with a “food recovery” focus – cooking nutritious, sugar free meals with cosmetically inferior food that might otherwise go to waste.

All are welcome. Bring containers to take food home. Cooking will be at the Britannia Seniors Centre in East Vancouver.

For information, drop-in dates and times, call 604 718-5895.
