Celebrated nationwide during the month of October, National Co-op Month is an opportunity to raise awareness of a trusted, proven way to do business and build our communities. The theme for this year’s celebration, “Co-ops Commit: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion,” highlights how co-operatives and credit unions are creating diverse, equitable and inclusive organizations, and working to empower communities that have been excluded from economic participation and advancement. Here are some ideas on how your food co-op can join in the celebration.
The Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA) is a regional federation of food co-ops working together toward a shared vision of a thriving regional economy, rooted in a healthy, just and sustainable food system, and a vibrant community of co-operative enterprise.
