Cooperation Humboldt's food team is an active and energetic group focusing on our food systems. We believe that access to healthy food is a basic human right, and should be provided to everyone regardless of wealth or income level. We are currently assessing the local food landscape, and testing several pilot programs (some in partnership with HSU students), including establishing free food pantries, converting front lawns into community gardens, and installing vertical gardens in public spaces. Ultimately, we envision transforming our public spaces into food producing landscapes for the benefit of all residents.
We aim to amplify the great things already happening in the solidarity economy here on the North Coast, as well as to build our community's capacity for responsible resilience going forward. Please explore, connect with, and support the people and organizations listed below already doing great work, and/or contact us to join our work towards making this program area even more robust!

Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms (WWOOF) is part of a worldwide effort to link visitors with organic farmers, promote an educational exchange, and build a global community conscious of ecological farming practices.
