Position: Retail Store Volunteers
Organization: The Grainery Food Co-operative
Location: The Grainery, Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Grainery Food Co-operative is a non-profit, 100% volunteer run organization dedicated to selling local, organic and sustainably grown food that is affordable, tasty and nutritious. The Co-op format promotes community involvement which allows prices to be kept low, so that people of all economic backgrounds have access to healthy organic food. In addition, we strive to reduce environmental degradation by purchasing items in bulk with minimal or compostable packaging and provide the opportunity to refill products where possible.

The Grainery is a workers co-op where each member works 6 hours per month to qualify for a 15% discount on purchases. These hours are spent in a variety of ways: shift at the Saturday History Farmers market or at the store, bagging bulk products, ordering, managing communications, organising events or doing maintenance work.

To volunteer, complete the Volunteer Signup form at, or stop by the store at 2385 Agricola St. in Halifax during business hours: Tuesday-Friday 14:30-18:30, and Saturdays 10:00-14:00.
