How does organisational membership work?
Organisations are encouraged to use the Broome Food Co-op to purchase ethical paper products (toilet paper and paper towel). They can also order dry goods through the Co-op. Membership is slightly more expensive as we recognise that organisations cannot volunteer. Non-profit organisations will however benefit from donations of food and goods by the co-op to them from time to time.
