Cooperation Town co-ops are small buying groups, providing their members with free and affordable groceries, sourced in bulk and distributed at a very low price.
Cooperation Town food co-ops are owned by their members and run according to local needs. Members decide collectively on how to organise and are responsible for the day to day running of the co-op.
While each Cooperation Town co-op is independent, the network is designed to share resources and support across the movement. Our vision is for a food co-op on every street in every town!
What we love about them:
They are based on solidarity, not charity. They are the most affordable – and sociable! – way to get food.

In short: demand higher wages and refuse to line the pockets of greedy corporations.
How do we do this?
By joining trade unions, tenants unions and community food co-ops, organising for pay rises and reduced living costs.

We, the workers, are paying with our poverty wages for share holders' profits!
