Students at UC Berkeley opened the Food Collective in 2010 to gain control over our food system to make it better. We do this by running an educational grocery store: we want our customers to know more about our food system; we want our members to know more about food business; and we want to have it stocked with affordable, healthy, sustainable, and community-sourced food.
Members work in the store on a weekly basis and on committees to earn a 10% discount on all our food, elect our Board of Directors, hire staff, guide the direction of our committees, and deliberate, collaborate and vote on critical store issues.
We'll be hiring several new student store managers this semester and expanding our programmatic areas to make this undoubtably our wildest semester yet!
