The Mid-Atlantic Food Cooperative Alliance (MAFCA) exists for the mutual benefit of its members and the greater community in which we live.
Our purpose is to grow the cooperative economy, provide education about co-ops, and build a sustainable and equitable system of healthy, local food production, distribution, and consumption.
We are 31 food co-ops, buying clubs, and start-up efforts in 6 states (DE, MD, NJ, NY, PA, VA) with aggregate annual sales of over $150 million dollars. We meet several times a year at food cooperatives in the mid-Atlantic region and communicate regularly via our listserv.
Our next Regional Cooperative Meeting will be on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at
Takoma Park Silver Spring Co-op
201 Ethan Allen Avenue
Takoma Park MD 20912
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or want to arrange carpooling.
