CoFED staff regularly organize events like convergences, coop tours, and skillsharing conference calls. If you are a student-run food coop and want to promote your team's events or just let the network know about the awesome stuff you're up to, email the deets to firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will add it to the events calendar too.
In this webinar, we'll be talking about building an accountable workplace by highlighting policies and practices from campus food coops. Kiran Nigam from the AORTA collective will be the guest expert and we'll also give you some useful handouts to utilize after the webinar. The questions we'll be focusing on are How do we balance our needs as individuals with the long-term sustainability of our business? How can we create a culture of responsibility and follow-through?
CoFED's Summer Institute is a 9-day intensive, designed to equip teams with the tools and training necessary to start work towards a community-based food solution in or around their campus. This program will be open to idea stage start-ups through existing co-ops seeking to refine or scale-up, and will create a supportive community to learn in and build cooperatives together!
