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!

” Throughout its history, the coop has been a hub for community, self expression, and conscious living. To me, the success of this project is a success for these precious and priceless aspects of life. It has always been an honor to be a part of a place that very openly nurtures these things. Being a part of project we own it, watching everyone come together to keep this alive, has provided a lot of hope and has further validated that what we’re doing here is right and powerful and moving and makes me smile a wide smile.” -Adam Henry, Co-op Receiving & Special Orders Manager
