Visit Isla Vista Food Coop to shop, taste and learn about this wonderful store

The Isla Vista Food Coop sells seasonal produce sourced from our local farmers and is open 7 days a week. Come learn more about this wonderful place from Melissa Cohen, the general manager. She will share information about the coop and give a tour of the store explaining how food products are selected and we will sample tasty food. Donation of $10.00 suggested; food will be available for purchase and shopping! if you want to purchase bulk olive oil and vinegar; there are clean bottles to purchase in case you forget.

In addition, I will be discussing GMOs and the It's Our Right to Know campaign to label foods with GMOs ( www.labelgmos.org) including info about how you can get involved.

Supervised children welcome.

    Well organized overview of IV Food Coop's history, mission and what it offers to the community (e.g., a very strong emphasis on Local). The general manager's passion and enthusiasm for her work was evident. I was very glad I went.
