Cooperative Growth Curriculum: Building Blocks to Start Up & Scale Up Your Food Business Idea

CoFED’s Cooperative Growth Curriculum consists of workshops, exercises, and handouts designed to support student-run food cooperatives at every stage of their development. Recognizing that food insecurity is a growing issue disproportionately affecting marginalized groups, and that food justice is inextricably linked with racial and social justice, this curriculum focuses on equity as a guiding principle in food cooperative development. 

This curriculum will show you how to:

  • Cultivate a sound and financially-stable food coop that truly embodies the vision of community-owned food
  • Facilitate accessible and thorough exercises to train student coop leaders
