The Natural Foods Buying Club

The Natural Foods Buying Club

If you are interested in buying natural and organic food, health and beauty products, or household cleaning products in bulk quantities, the Ben Franklin Natural Foods Buying Club is designed for you! No membership fee required.

Our members buy at wholesale prices plus 10% and have convenient access to online information so browsing can be done at home and you can email your order right to us. We also split cases of packaged foods among each other and share rice, beans, and dried fruit for best savings.

For more information, call us at 440-774-5711, stop in at Ben Franklin, or email us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

As Ben Franklin would have said “Health is Wealth”.


How it works: We use United Natural Foods (UNFI) as our source. Product and pricing information is available as follows:

Website: (choose unfi east region)





Using the navigation bar across the top, you can browse by brand or category. Clicking on the orange product number will allow you to see pricing and nutritional information. Although the website will allow you to put things in a cart, this feature is non-functional. You must email or call us at our store for your order to process properly.

Orders must include:

Item #, brand, pack size, description, price. We add a 10% handling charge and applicable sales tax to your order. No additional discounts apply.

How do I place and order?

Orders can be dropped off at Ben Franklin, or emailed to us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)


We try to facilitate splits of case quantities when possible. If you are interested in an item but don’t want all of the case, please email us and we will let the group know. However, it works best if members share among each other. We cannot order cases that aren’t fully sold.

If you are taking splits from another order, do not put the item number, just indicate how many you are taking.

Messy bulk items will need to be bought by one person and split in your home (e.g. raisins, peanut butter)


If you are interested in joining our Club, sign up for our newsletter which notifies you of a deadline for ordering, and keeps you up to date on potential deals or partial splits available. Simply give us your email address and
