Cooperation Town is a new network of community food co-ops, organising on streets and estates across the country. We support the creation of small buying groups, providing their members with free and affordable groceries, sourced in bulk and distributed at a very low price. 

The co-ops are owned by their members and run according to local needs. Members decide collectively on how to organise and are responsible for the day to day running of the co-op. While each Cooperation Town co-op is independent, the network is designed to share resources and support across the movement.

Anyone can start a Cooperation Town food co-op on their street or estate! In this workshop we will share the basic principles and processes and help attendees take steps to start organising in their community.
