Project We Own It

this is the story of the Isla Vista Food Co-op's campaign to raise $200,000 for the down payment to buy our building. over 1,000 community supporters helped us secure our co-op for future generations of conscious consumption, sustainable living, and ethical business. along the way, meet the community that makes this place go round, staff members, co-op owners, community activists and shoppers!
