How Central Brooklyn Eats

How Central Brooklyn Eats

From July through October of this year, Central Brooklyn Food Co­op member-leaders hit the streets to document their neighbors’ food shopping practices and attitudes. In all, approximately 350 surveys were collected using an on­line survey and an in­-person survey distributed through more than 20 outreach sessions.

A few insights:

○ As a whole, Central Brooklynites were satisfied with the store hours and shopping environment offered in their primary grocery stores.

○ Conversely, they were unsatisfied with their primary grocery stores’ product prices and the lack of “ethnic and cultural” foods.

○ Eighty­-two percent of those surveyed said they would join and participate in a food coop in Central Brooklyn.
