The Feeding Milan project is a joint effort of 3 partners: Slow Food, Università degli Studi di Scienze Gastronomiche (University of Gastronomic Sciences) and Politecnico di Milano. The aim of the project is to design a system of services and infrastructures to develop a more efficient and effective Milanese agri-food chain (involving both the city and the Agricultural Park South Milano), in order to shape a scenario of sustainable and innovative metro-agriculture.

What are Food Coops?

Food Coops are an essential part of Urban Agriculture and there is an organisation called Common Ground who are doing best practice work in this area. Common Ground Food Co-op is a cooperatively owned grocery store that promotes local and organic production, fosters conscious consumerism, and builds community. Though we are community owned, membership is not required to shop at Common Ground!
