MOVING DAY!
The South Suburban Food Co-op will be closing in it’s current location. Our last day opened will be April 23rd.

After that day, the volunteers of the co-op will be working to pack up the store to move to our new location in Homewood. The Grand Opening for the new location is still to be announced.

The address for the new location is 1941-1943 Ridge Road, Homewood IL. Right next to the Dance studio off of Dixie Highway.
