    Buying Kosher Food. I checked the prices of the kc kosher coop delivered to Phoenix and the prices were not that much less than the prices at Imperial. It might be worth it to buy locally and support he local kosher stores. Perhaps you could even get a better prices from them if you place nice orders. Then you don’t have to worry about the coop restrictions.
