The Neighboring Food Co-op Association

The Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA) is a federation of food co-ops across New England & New York State that are working together toward a shared vision of a thriving co-operative economy, rooted in a healthy, just and sustainable food system, and a vibrant community of co-operative enterprise.

Providing a space for collaboration, innovation, and mutual support for Food Co-op leaders is central to the work of the Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA), a co-operative of retail grocery co-ops across the Northeast. Organized under the theme, “Co-operation: Our Foundation,” the NFCA’s 13th Annual Meeting and Member Gathering took place on Saturday, 16 March 2024, at Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA.

With more than 80 food co-ops and support organizations in attendance, the gathering was an opportunity for dialog, networking, and workshops laying the foundation for the second International Year of Co-operatives coming up in 2025.
