Food Shift

Grocery cooperatives and collectives are alternatives to the giant corporate grocery stores that direct our food system. In comparison to grocery chains like Walmart, Safeway and Trader Joe’s, cooperative/collective models value worker rights, fair wages, local food and generally shift our food system towards a more sustainable model. Cooperatives and collectives are similar in values and model but a cooperative is actually a more specific form of a collective.

A collective is simply a group of people or entities that are working together towards a shared goal/purpose. A cooperative is also a group of people working towards a shared goal but that goal is typically mutual benefit and often involves working together so that everyone can make money and benefit. In collectives, the business itself is managed by the employees as opposed to a singular higher-up or separate entity. These business structures are both governed democratically by the members and thus, wages, worker treatment and benefits are usually better than in huge corporate entities.

Examples of worker cooperatives in the Bay Area:
Arizmendi Association of Cooperatives (including Cheeseboard Pizza and Arizmendi Bakery)
Berkeley Free Clinic
Inkworks Press
Mandela Food Cooperative
924 Gilman Street
Other Avenues Food Store
Rainbow Grocery Cooperative
