Setting up a food co-op in a university or college
Sustain has been working in partnership with People & Planet to help students across the country to set up food co-ops in their universities and colleges.
Since the Food Co-ops programme began there has been a huge growth in new student-run food co-ops, including co-ops in York, Falmouth, Brighton, Sussex, and Durham, amongst many others.
If you are interested in setting up a student food co-op the following resources can help you to get started:
