The Alternative Food Cooperative

The Alternative Food Cooperative originated in 1970 as a grassroots organization with a dozen families in the Kingston area motivated to provide healthy food to members at affordable prices. With increased participation from the University of Rhode Island’s students, faculty, and other community members, the co-op has expanded to provide healthy food options for the entire community. Annual membership fees are: $36 single, $48 family, $24 seniors and students but membership is not required to shop at the Alternative Food coop. Members that work two hours a month receive a six percent discount and members that work more than two hours a month receive a 12 percent discount.
