Project: Food Bank
During the Covid-19 lockdown, mutual aid groups, food banks and community associations provided thousands of meals to Camden residents on low or no income. These efforts continue to provide immediate relief for people facing acute food poverty. But the crisis is far from over.
We are inviting you to a virtual presentation by Cooperation Town - who are currently working in partnership with Castlehaven on phasing out our emergency C-19 foodbank by introducing more sustainable community-led food coop’s.
Cooperation Town is a newly established Camden group proposing a sustainable alternative to mass charity operation: a local network of community-led food co-ops, self-organised and owned by its members, who will have ongoing access to extremely affordable food.
They recently released the Cooperation Town Starter Pack - an accessible guide to starting new food co-ops - and will present the pack during their presentation, and also cover the supporting infrastructure and the ideas behind Cooperation Town. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have regarding this subject.
Please email Tricia Richards on firstname.lastname@example.org for the zoom link to this presentation.
Please help us offer a multitude of age and culturally appropriate activities to residents of a highly deprived area.
