The Weavers Way Food Justice Committee invites everyone’s input at a Co-op-wide discussion about how to work toward making healthy food readily accessible and affordable to all. Please join us for an open and heartfelt discussion about the role the Co-op might play in leveling the playing field for everyone’s benefit. 

 One way the Co-op has been trying to make healthy food accessible and affordable is through the Food For All program, which was started in 2015 and currently has about 200 members. It provides a 10 percent discount for members who are on assistance (such as SNAP, TANF, WIC, SSI, SSDI, and Military Disability). 

 We feel that we can improve the program — for example, by increasing the discount and expanding the number of participants. How might we do this? Could Co-op members donate some of their discounts and/or hours to let others gain more? Could we offer low-cost weekly meals? We look forward to hearing your ideas. Please come and share them.

Our goal is to make the Co-op a comfortable and affordable place for everyone, so we can all eat together at the Co-op “table.”
