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!

“The university is like the brain of the Isla Vista community, and the Co-op is like the heart. Every day, this place pumps love, passion, energy and creativity out into the world, and then all those people whose lives are made better return the favor when the Co-op is in need. But we are not separate from the Co-op; we are it; it exists because of what we want for our community. It’s a manifestation of the world we want to see. And with the purchase of the building, we will be able to more fully create a sustainable community that can also serve as a model for communities everywhere.” -Andrew Dunn, PWOI Coordinator and Co-operoo Organizer
