UW Student Food Collective

University of Washington

Seattle, Washington

The UWSFC is first and foremost a group of students concerned about the environmental, social, economic and health impacts of our agro-food system. UWSFC members are a diverse group of students from a wide variety of disciplines who’ve come together because we share a passion for improving our own health and the health of our planet.

Currently, they are a registered student group that runs a bulk buying club as well as host many events on campus and hold a coop and food studies seminar. The future vision of the UWSFC involves a student-operated food cart serving local, sustainable, and ethical food and drink. This space will not only operate as a resource supplying affordable food to the community, but will also provide students with an educational resource. “The cart is integral to our goals of empowering members of our campus and wider community with greater control over their food systems,” says the team.
