Celebrating a year of community support
Every year we bring together Co-op colleagues and Members to celebrate the positive impact they’ve made in local communities across the UK. Learn more about some of the amazing individuals who’ve made a difference.
We’re bringing communities together around food
Everyone should be able to eat good food. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Your Local Pantry to help people enjoy big meals on smaller budgets. Each Local Pantry is stocked with surplus food, to help people eat well through the cost of living crisis.
