Celebrate Co-op Month!

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.

October is National Co-op Month and your Neighboring Food Co-ops join other co-operatives and credit unions across the United States to celebrate that “Co-ops Build Economic Power”!

The National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International (NCBA CLUSA) identified “Co-ops Build Economic Power” as the theme for 2022, highlight the cooperative business model as the best way to build and economy that empowers everyone.  Co-ops and their members are working together to build stronger, more inclusive and resilient communities. 

From in-store events, special sales and membership drives to community activities and more, our Neighboring Food Co-ops are spreading the word about the Co-operative Difference across our region. Go Co-op! and see more about what’s in store throughout October.
