CoFED inspiregizes future food co-op leaders across North America. We support students with training and tools, and connect them with peers, mentors, and allies in a solidarity network.


Eric, the California Regional Organizer, joined the CoFED network in 2011 as a member of the Humboldt Student Food Collective. As an RO, he offers insight in how to build a strong student organization and start a cooperative food business, and is excited to build a strong network in California! Contact him at
