Formal and Informal Cooperative Development to Support Local and Regional Food Systems
According to a May 2020 Civil Eats article, formal cooperative models have been “thriving during the
pandemic.” Given scarce resources, reliance on diverse partnerships may be more important than ever
in sustaining businesses. Further, these cooperative models have a long history in BIPOC communities to
address equity as well as food and market access.
This webinar will discuss the history of formal and informal cooperative models in BIPOC communities,
and how different local and regional food businesses have been able to adopt and adapt these models
This webinar is part of an ongoing series offered by the Local Food Systems Response to COVID.
