The New Food Coop Model

We received our first bulk food delivery from Azure Standard this week. We placed a order on-line the week before delivery for cases of produce, flour, nuts and meats. The order arrived at the usual drop location in front of our house (pure coincidence) and we dragged the boxes in. We had been waiting for the weather to cool down so we could store food without concern of spoilage. Now that we have spent time reviewing their catalog I realize that we could be placing orders year round in small quantity as you are not required to buy large bulk amounts. The truck delivers every month and all we need to do is pay with our credit card on the site. It's nice not to have the complexity of a buying club where all the funds need to be collected and the food broken out from bulk to individual sizes.
