The Lafayette Food and Farm Cooperative is dedicated to teaching students how to operate a small sustainable farm by volunteering at LaFarm to grow and distribute organic produce to students, dining services, and members of the Easton Community. Members help with the actual farm labor as well as planning agricultural season and organizing educational and social events about food and agriculture for the campus.

Please note: membership requirements must comply with the College's non-discrimination statement.
Each organization must designate someone as the primary contact for the organization. This is someone with whom the administration will communicate and who is responsible for ensuring that the organization complies with College policy.
In addition to a president or primary contact, each organization must also designate a treasurer or financial manager. To ensure responsible accounting practices, this person must not be one in the same so as to provide appropriate checks and balances.

Please list your statement of purpose or mission statement. This should answer the question for prospective members, "What can I expect from this organization if I join it?" or "Why does your organization exist?"
LaFFCo intends to teach students about food through experience in growing it, as well as to help the community with the food we have produced.
