Project We Own It

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!

“Before I heard about Project We Own It, I’d only set foot in the IV Food Co-op once or twice. It wasn’t until I witnessed firsthand the unprecendented amount of love and support that the residents of IV demonstrated, that I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. The success of this project wasn’t the result of just a few people’s devotion and commitment, but the result of many. That, to me, is community.” -Rhandy Siordia, Associated Students External Vice President of Local Affairs
