Sustainability

December 12, 2016

The Davis Food Co-op has always been guided by the 7 Cooperative Principles. The seventh is “Concern For Community.” We are aware that change is coming for our country, and the Co-op remains committed to the safety and dignity of our staff, our Owners, and our community. We hold space for diversity, for differences of opinion, and for dialogue. We stand for inclusion, and invite every single member of our community to stand with us as we call for an end to actions that divide us and incite hatred. We welcome all races, all religions, all ethnic groups, all sexual orientations and all genders to be a part of our Co-op family, and to stand with us against injustice.

In unity and fellowship,

The Davis Food Co-op

We're an Owl-Wise Leader in Davis!

Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our Ends, and also in our partnerships. We are proud to work with the following local companies "so that our current and future member-owners and other people in the community have... an improved environment and a more sustainable food system."

Advanced IPM on raptor-friendly pest management,

Whole Systems Design (pictured below in blue tshirts) on ecological landscaping, installation, plantings and more, and

Oakland Packaging on ecological solutions for consumer packaging in our store.

We're an "Owl Wise Leader," and proudly accepted an award from Raptors Are The Solution on July 8, 2016 (photo below). Details and a press release here.

We are members of the Sustainable Food Trade Association, and support their mission to build the capacity of the organic food trade to transition to sustainable business models.
