The Co-op Community fund helps East End Food Co-op put cooperative principles into action, specifically education, training, and information; cooperation among cooperatives; and concern for community. Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation (TPCF) sponsors the Co-op Community Fund program and donates income earned from the investment principle to local non-profit groups working on issues relating to sustainable agriculture and organic food, hunger and social issues, environmental protection, and cooperatives. The principle (which is held by TPCF) is leveraged for the development of cooperatives and helps finance consumer, worker, and housing cooperatives and land trusts throughout the country. Register Round Up funds support the EEFC’s Co-op Community Fund.
