In efforts to increase local food options on campus, the Wesleyan Local Co-Op was started in Fall 2011. In its first semester, the LoCo offered one share. Since then, it has grown to 11 shares –– offering produce, meat, eggs, tofu, seitan, granola, coffee, milk, dairy, cheese, and bread. 600 members strong (and with 15 faculty participants...what up Seth Redfield), LoCo has revolutionized the food game on campus.
