How it's making a difference
Find out about the approaches and principles of some key players in the food citizenship movement.Let's learn from each other.
Unlike a food bank, where recipients are means tested and have no say in how the service is run, food co-ops are owned by their members, who decide together what to buy and how to run the co-op. They are not-for-profit groups, set up to meet members’ needs and are controlled by the people who join them. They are based on solidarity, not charity. While members have to contribute towards the cost of their shopping, food co-ops offer a great value for money.
