CoFED brings tools and trainings to campus communities to create strong cooperatively-run food businesses. We engage with a dynamic network to promote thriving, equitable, and resilient local economies. Since launching nationally in 2010 with support from Michael Pollan, Bill McKibben, and many others, CoFED has worked with over 60 colleges starting or scaling cooperative, sustainable food ventures. Today, our network consists of student teams, mentors, and CoFED staff & Board working together to grow this movement.
