Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Food Co-Ops Team Up To Feed More Families

GARFIELD PARK — A group of food cooperatives have joined forces to feed more people struggling with food insecurity as part of an initiative called ChiMeals.

The co-ops will work together to share resources and expertise, expand their networks, raise money and support each other in their shared goals of creating wealth-building opportunities while improving access to healthy food. The co-ops involved in ChiMeals include ChiFresh Kitchen, Cocina Compartida de Trabajadores Cooperativistas and Cooperativa Visionarias.

“Our collaboration is about co-ops coming together so we can keep each co-op strong and help the community at the same time,” said Kimberly Britt, a worker-owner at ChiFresh Kitchen. “We all have the same passions … and help each other so that we can continue to grow and succeed and make living wages for each other as well as serve our community.”
