The Northwest has an amazing network of established student-run food coops, as well as awesome student groups organizing on their campuses for ecologically-sound and socially-responsible food options outside of their corporate food service provider. Whether you're a student-run restaurant or grocer, bulk buying club or garden club, we want you to be in our regional network! We like to meet up often, support each others' efforts, and have fun! For more information on the coops, see their websites (linked) or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
