University of Washington Student Food Cooperative
The mission of the UW Student Food Cooperative is to localize and democratize the campus food system, enabling us to control the choice, practices and polices relating to our food. We will promote healthy eating by serving nutritious, organic, ethically-produced, and high-quality food to the campus community. We seek to provide a forum for education, advocacy, and discussion of sustainability issues. Through these engaging conversations and actions, we aim to empower students, faculty, staff and community members to make informed decisions when contemplating “What should I eat?”
In the process of operating the Co-op, students will acquire experience managing a social enterprise and developing a dynamic community space. By incentivizing engagement with the campus food system, the UW Student Food Cooperative will turn passive consumers into active participants of the food system.
