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.

In the Spring semester of 2012, a group of students began meeting over weekly potluck dinners. We became a registered student club and started bulk buying soon after. Through the meals we share, we work to build a community around food, labor, agricultural, and environmental issues. The cooperative is an experiment in an alternative way of organizing our everyday lives on and around this campus. As a collective, we aim to cultivate loyal and diverse relationships that will support local economies and land stewardship, preserve and cultivate diverse, productive landscapes, promote resource sharing, and increase access to nourishing food across multiple differences including race, class, gender.
