Biography: Danny Spitzberg practices cooperation as a form of positive protest. As Lead Trainer with CoFED, he trains and coordinates regional organizers in empowering students to get an “acquired taste” for democracy by running cooperative food ventures. Danny designs experiential learning curriculum that connect CoFED’s mission with its work on the ground. His specialities are team-building, prototyping, and training. Prior to CoFED, Danny co-created the largest chapter of Slow Food on Campus in Madison, WI, starting with weekly dinners and growing into a group of 25 student interns running a café, a CSA share, and several community outreach projects. Danny lives in and loves Oakland, CA. He also knows a thing or two about tea and bicycles.
