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.

Cooperation Girdlestone in #Islington, north London, had their founding meeting last night, where they collectively agreed their co-op plans and roles. With support from our friends @felixprojectuk, they will start distributing food to members in the coming weeks. https://t.co/YzOQ7N6rb2
Tonight @CooperationTown organisers will share the rage & solidarity of members who are too scared to take the streets. Many of our members were forced to seek safety here, but continue to face hardship & violence by the @ukhomeoffice. https://t.co/xOMbwwzZF6
We stand together because we know a better system exists. One rooted in fairness and dignity. Borders are new, systems can be changed, and together we imagine a future where all migrants are liberated from this fight.
Please join us tonight.
Welcome Cooperation Arsenal! Last night a group of #Islington residents launched the latest @CooperationTown community food co-op at the @Arsenal stadium.

Thanks @CoopFutures for the invitation to join the conversation. It was inspiring to hear from so many great #cooperatives. We look forward to collaborate with #Plymouth based groups and organisations towards setting up new community food co-ops across the city! https://t.co/pgCbTW7f4H
First up, @ShiriShalmy from the brilliant @CooperationTown talking about the hyperlocal approach - neighbours deciding together what they want to buy and saving up to 40% on their food through bulk buying and saving food from being thrown away. #LocalAction
