Skookum Food Provisioners Coop

Skookum organizes a lot of food related resources and one of them is the Abundant Pantry Bulk Buying Club.

For those of you not familiar with food buying clubs, the idea is that a group of people organize to buy food in bulk at near-wholesale cost, then divide it amongst themselves. Skookum, like most food buying clubs, focuses on organic foods. Periodically they source special foods like nuts or olive oil. I got to taste some of the single source extra virgin olive oil and it blew my mind. I love a nice fruity olive oil and I’m pretty happy with the stuff I usually get, but this stuff was in a whole ‘nother league.

Skookum also has several ongoing projects such as the Cider Press, The Skookum Gleaners, and they provide really interesting workshops from time to time.

If you are interested in quality food products, organic products, food security, or want to expand your skills, this group is for you.  Here is a link to their website: http://skookumfood.ca/
