Kresge Community Natural Foods

The Kresge Food Co-op is certainly more unique amongst co-ops, since it is an entirely student run project at Kresge College, University of California at Santa Cruz. The co-op has been a tradition of the college for over twenty years.

The co-op is open from 9am to 7pm on weekdays and weekends from noon to 6pm – and no, you do NOT have to be a student!

A student run cooperative, of course, works a little differently from the usual co-op – in this case, the store is primarily run by a group of 12 full-time students called the "core collective" – these students are the primary owners/operators of the collective. There are a variety of membership options available, however, which aren’t described on the website!
