History of Food Collective


It all started when…

The Food Collective started in 2009, in tandem with student protests against the university’s planned installation of fast food chains in Lower Sproul, such as Panda Express. Students quickly became inspired to do themselves what the institution did not, and supported by a $90,000 grant from TGIF funds, the Food Collective took its start, moving into the storefront in November 2010.
