The Ann B. Clark Co-op
The Ann B. Clark Co-op serves the Goodwin University community and is managed by a team of faculty, staff, and students. Through the passion, generosity, and inspiration of Goodwin University's provost emerita, Ann B. Clark, this service ensures that Goodwin students, faculty, staff, and magnet school families have access to the resources they need to address food insecurity.
When you come to the Co-op, you'll find a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and pantry staples available for you to choose from. The Co-op regularly stocks the following items:
- Clothing items, including interview attire
- Dairy products
- Diaper bank (accessible on a monthly basis)
- Fresh produce
- Frozen foods
- Hygiene kits
- Meats and fish
- Pantry essentials, including rice, pasta, bread, and more
Our fresh produce and meat items rotate regularly and change with seasonality. As often as possible, we offer allergy-friendly, vegetarian, and specialty items to ensure there is something for everyone's dietary needs. When you become a Co-op client, you will receive regular communications about what is available for pickup at the Co-op.
Co-op items are ranked using a Supporting Wellness at Pantries (SWAP) model initiative from the Institute for Hunger Research & Solutions at Connecticut Foodshare.
Run by Goodwin community members for Goodwin community members
Services at the Co-op are free to current Goodwin University students, staff, faculty, and magnet school families. Our strategic work with such partners as Connecticut Foodshare, ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Dairy Famers of America, and Highland Park Market, as well as generous donations from our internal supporters, ensures that our shelves are always stocked with quality products.
