When your friends join CoFED, they'll receive the opportunities and resources they need to transform the way we grow, share and eat food -- same as you:
  • Exclusive access to our #UnlearningWithCoFED emails, where we question and learn together how co-ops fit into the larger visions of food, racial, economic, gender and climate justice
  • Updates about unique CoFED opportunities, including jobs, internships and our Summer Co-op Academy
  • Carefully curated stories about food, food justice, and co-ops (NEW and coming in 2018!)

When you pass along this email and share knowledge, you plant the seeds for solidarity and grow our power to affect systemic change. Right now, our email list is 1,100 people strong! LET'S MAKE IT 2,200 STRONG! We can do this! If everyone reading this email helped just 1 friend sign up and join the movement, we'd hit our goal in a couple of hours.

If we reach 2,200 friends in 2 days or by Nov 23 at noon EST, we'll celebrate with a special #CoFEDFriendsgiving #UnlearningWithCoFED Facebook shout out on to everyone* who forwarded this email.  Be a pal and invite your friends to join you in growing the food justice and co-op movement!
