Food Conspiracy’s Cooperative Community Fund (CCF) is one of 40 local Cooperative Community Funds in the country at food co-ops, all of which are sponsored by the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation. Every year, Food Conspiracy invests several thousand dollars into our CCF. This investment, paired with donations made by members and shoppers, has been helping our fund grow steadily since we started it in 2001. The fund is invested in Cooperative Development from housing to food co-ops and more. During the election, the interest earned from our CCF is donated to three local non-profits of our members’ choosing.
Any local organization that is a not-for-profit organization and has a mission in alignment with the Co-op’s may apply to be one of our CCF winners. Food Conspiracy Co-op owners vote for CCF nominees in February and winners are announced at the Annual Meeting. Download 2018 CCF Application. The deadline for 2018 applications is Friday, February 16, 2018 and will be voted on in March.

There are two ways that you can donate to our CCF:
- Make a donation at the register. Consider “rounding-up” your change every time you shop (just ask the cashier), or make larger donations on an occasional basis.
- Donate online at the Give Where You Live Campaign website: http://community.coop/ccf/donate.php
