Mission: The Mid-Atlantic Food Co-op Alliance 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.

Objectives

  • Establish a regional network of consumer food co-ops, businesses and farmers.
  • Promote a marketing brand for regional co-ops.
  • Publicize, promote, and enhance resources for established and start-up co-ops.
