People in New York! Park Slope Food Co-op carries Rox Chox!

Brooklyn, New York, you are in luck!

After an entire year of follow-up calls to the Park Slope Food Co-op, they finally ordered! They had wanted to order as soon as they tasted this Chox, but the world works in mysterious ways. A year was well worth the wait for us, and now all the awesome folks of Park Slope are in for a delicious surprise!

We are so excited to make Rox Chox available at our first retail location in New York, and especially because The Park Slope Food Co-op is such an amazing place.  True to the following swoon-worthy Mission Statement, they will be selling Rox Chox at an awesome price! @goodfoodcheap isn't their handle on twitter for nothing! (also @foodcoop) If you live in the Brooklyn area and haven't joined the PSFC yet, I would highly recommend that you check them out!  We are so thrilled!

Park Slope Food Coop Mission Statement

The Park Slope Food Coop is a member-owned and operated food store-- an alternative to commercial profit-oriented business. As members, we contribute our labor: working together builds trust through cooperation and teamwork and enables us to keep prices as low as possible within the context of our values and principles. Only members may shop, and we share responsibilities and benefits equally. We strive to be a responsible and ethical employer and neighbor. We are a buying agent for our members and not a selling agent for any industry. We are a part of and support the cooperative movement. We offer a diversity of products with an emphasis on organic, minimally processed and healthful foods. We seek to avoid products that depend on the exploitation of others. We support non-toxic, sustainable agriculture.

We respect the environment. We strive to reduce the impact of our lifestyles on the world we share with other species and future generations. We prefer to buy from local, earth-friendly producers. We recycle. We try to lead by example, educating ourselves and others about health and nutrition, cooperation and the environment.

We are committed to diversity and equality. We oppose discrimination in any form. We strive to make the Coop welcoming and accessible to all and to respect the opinions, needs and concerns of every member. We seek to maximize participation at every level, from policy making to running the store.

We welcome all who respect these values.
