We aim to bring a student run food cooperative to The George Washington University campus. Imagine… A place where you can get a $5 sandwich and become a leader in your food system. Mission We will empower students to become leaders in sustainable food and small business through inclusive and democratic decision-making. Students will gain the tools needed to make smart nutritious food choices. We will operate a cooperative cafe that promotes community-building and environmental responsibility.
