CoFED partners with young people of color from poor and working-class backgrounds to build food and land co-ops.


CCMA, the Consumer Cooperative Management Association, is the biggest scene for cooperative managers and leaders! Their annual conference draws the brightest minds from the cooperative world, especially those in neighborhood food cooperatives.

This year, everyone convenes in Austin, Texas, the birthplace of the Wheatsville Food Co-op, the original Whole Foods supermarket.

Danny, our Lead Trainer, will present a workshop titled “Emerging Talent: Good Fellows for Co‐ops" in which he’ll explain CoFED’s Regional Organizer Fellowship program and our vision for growing the food justice and cooperative movements by boosting youth into the food co-op universe with valuable training, tools, and a network of peers and mentors.

If you’ll be attending CCMA, please reach out to [email protected]!
