The mission of Lefferts Community Food Co-op (LCFC) is to sell affordable, sustainable, and nutritious food, to encourage healthy food practices and to foster environmentally responsible activities through democratic cooperation. LCFC focuses on serving residents of Flatbush, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and Crown Heights, as well as to the larger New York City metropolitan area. LCFC adheres to the principals outlined by the International Cooperative Alliance.
Our objectives are to:
Sell affordable, sustainable, and culturally-relevant food and products that are easily accessible to the communities we serve at the lowest price possible;
2. Address issues and provide solutions relating to the nutrition disparity experienced by our residents;
Educate members and residents of our community about the benefits of healthy eating and living;
Foster sustainable partnerships with local farmers, CSA's, Farmer's Markets, cooperatives, community, health and education institutions;
Engage local businesses in promoting access to healthy food; and
Become a role model for the community in demonstrating the benefits of cooperative association.
