Education has been a central goal of the Berkeley Student Food Collective before we even opened our doors in 2010. Our role in this very special local food system is not limited to retail:

  • As a non-profit organization we are an advocate for food justice.
  • We nurture relationships with our local farmers and food vendors.
  • As a business partner, we embrace vertical improvement and a collective vision of shared knowledge between organizations. 
  • We welcome every opportunity to grow as a dynamic part of the challenging ecological and economical future of food.
“This magical, marvelous food on our plate, this sustenance we absorb, has a story to tell. It has a journey. It leaves a footprint. It leaves a legacy. To eat with reckless abandon, without conscience, without knowledge; folks, this ain’t normal.”
— Joel Salatin, farmer and author of Folks, This Ain’t Normal; You Can Farm
