Since 2014, the Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA) has been sponsoring a special track of workshops and presentations on “Co-operatives in the Food System” at the NOFA Summer Conference.
As part of our collaboration, the NFCA works with partner organizations to organize a special series of workshops on co-operatives and their contribution to regional food systems and economies at the annual NOFA Summer Conference.
The workshops cover a variety of ways in which co-operative enterprises contribute to more sustainable local food systems through a range of topics, from food safety rules for small producers and co-ops to practical steps for farmers interested in forming co-ops and business owners considering converting their enterprise to a co-operative, to strategies for using the co-op model to address food insecurity.
