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

Meet the 2018 Summer Co-op Academy Cohort!

We're so excited for you to meet the 13 young cooperators from across the U.S. and Canada who have been selected to join our 2018 Summer Co-op Academy!

When so many of us and our communities are under attack, these young cooperators give us hope and much to celebrate. Looking beyond traditional food co-ops, they are innovating cooperative solutions to address holistic community needs such as food sovereignty, healing, land access, cultural expression, and safety from state, economic, racial, religious, environmental and gender violence. In short, they are leading the way and showing us what the future of co-ops could and should be.



Gathering next week at the Earthseed Land Cooperative in Durham, North Carolina, this year’s cohort of emerging cooperative leaders will have a powerful opportunity to build their skills, leadership, and impact!

You can donate here to support them and the Summer Co-op Academy!



Thank you to this year's Summer Co-op Academy sponsors!
