How is the co-op being organized?

A:

At this point the Co-op is run entirely by volunteers. There are all kinds of volunteers in our organization: some who are committee members and meet regularly and others who volunteer for events or other discrete tasks. 

We at Ambler Food Co-op have also been offered great help and advice from other co-ops in the area. We also receive consulting advice from different organizations. There is a growing movement in southeastern Pennsylvania and nationally to run cooperative businesses because, as studies have shown, cooperatives bring more financial and social benefits to the community than privately run companies.
