Community Information Space

Community Information Space
The Davis Food Co-op provides space for tabling as part of our mission to educate the community. Tabling is a forum for community groups (non-profit, educational, families, children, and the arts) to share educational materials with Owners and shoppers of Davis Food Co-op. We will give tabling priority to organizations we already partner with, local organizations or ones whose mission and values align with the Co-op’s Ends. Tabling requests must be made one week before the desired date and are not scheduled until you receive a confirmation email from the Co-op. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis and may be denied or restricted based on previously scheduled events or holidays. Tabling can only be reserved by an individual or organization for a maximum of 4 hours per day and 3 days per week. These guidelines vary for Board Candidates. Tabling is an opportunity for customers who choose to find out more about a particular topic rather than an opportunity to solicit them. For this reason Tablers may not approach customers outside of the marked space or call out to customers to get them to visit the table. You can greet customers but should only engage with interested customers about your tabling topic if they approach your table and express interest. Aggressive canvassing or “hard-sell” tactics may result in suspension of tabling privileges. Groups not meeting these standards may be asked to leave at any time. Complaints from customers or issues with policy compliance may result in a permanent loss of tabling privileges. Additionally, organizations are required to adhere to the following rules in order to table on Co-op property:

Please share this policy with anyone who is working your table and have them sign below so that everyone is well informed and understands that they are to abide by these policies when tabling at the Davis Food Co-op. Every representative that will be utilizing this space is expected to read and agree to these policies prior to tabling. After completing this form, reach out to the Education and Outreach Specialist, Madison at msuoja@davisfood.coop to schedule.
