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.

The Student Network

CoFED staff serve as trainers and facilitators of a bottom-up solidarity network of student teams. They support and connect cooperatively-run food projects throughout different regions by conducting events and providing on-going support to help students make progress towards their goals. CoFED's pedagogy is based in Coop-to-Coop exchanges like coop tours, peer-mentoring calls, and skill sharing events. These teams make up the CoFED solidarity network, and together, they are creating a movement that has real impact!
