What is Food Club

The current food system is divided with no middle ground: limited free food for some and full price for others. The Food Club model is a big, systemic response focused on improving healthy food access in a high-dignity, high-choice environment. Qualifying low-income residents opt in by purchasing a membership, which provides food access at more convenient hours, all in a bright and inviting grocery-store style space staffed by volunteers.

Food Club invites qualifying low-income residents to take ownership and contribute at a level based on their income, offering a highly affordable way for members to invest in their family’s health and future. For a small monthly fee, members get points based on household size to spend on groceries as they wish throughout the month.

Volunteer roles at Food Club include the following:
  • Checkout Station - Greet members at checkout and ring up their groceries using the touch-screen checkout and scanner. *No money exchanged.
  • Guest Greeter - Welcome guests as they arrive at the Food Club and provide directions, information and a friendly greeting!
  • Food Stocking - Stock the Food Club shelves with products, and organize and straighten items on the floor.
  • Food Rescue Sorting - Turn food excess into food access for our members!
  • Food Repackaging - Repackage bulk dry goods or loose produce before the product goes out to the floor.
  • Truck Driver- Drive a CAH truck to pick up food at grocers and deliver back to the Food Club.
