Food Co-op Training Workshops

Urban Recipe has been launching and operating Food Cooperatives for low-income families since 1991. There are dozens of Urban Recipe inspired Co-ops locally and nationally that have launched through our Co-op Training and countless groups from around the US and as far as Tokyo and Hong Kong that have come to train with us and learn about our one-of-a-kind approach to solving hunger with dignity.

Co-op Training Workshops

Co-op Training Workshops provide an in-depth look into how our Co-op model works including an overview of how Co-ops are formed and operated.

Workshops are held at our site three times a year and are led by executive director, Jeremy Lewis, and Urban Recipe founder, Chad Hale.


Each Co-op Training Workshop includes a live look-in to an Urban Recipe Co-op, where trainees are invited to ask questions of the Co-op’s coordinator and members.
