Press release from friends at the university
"An opportunity to become involved in a food cooperative"
If you didn't know already, a food cooperative is where a group of people come together to purchase food in bulk quantities reducing cost and ensuring good quality locally sourced produce for members.Students from the Essex University are setting up a food cooperative on the campus. It will primarily serve the students & campus. But the group will be open to all.A workshop is being held to help start up the cooperative. The workshop will be a chance to learn about the structure of a cooperative and how you can become involved. The session will be ran by Nick Weir from the Stroudco Food Cooperative.
If you are interested in getting involved with the food coop please come along to the workshop. We will need plenty of volunteers as well as members to run the cooperative. Can you help???The meeting is taking place at 16:45 on Monday 21st Jan at the University of Essex. Meet the group outside the "Zest" cafe situated in square 3. ( see campus map link below)
Visitor Parking is available on Campus. But we would encourage you to use alternatives if possible. There are cycle parking places throughout the campus. As well a regular bus service to the campus.Hope to see you there!
