Cooperative principle seven is Concern for Community. During December we hosted multiple Food Drives to help local organizations address food insecurity. We partnered with Unitrans to give back to the community with ''Stuff a Bus'' food drive. The goal was to support the UC Davis Pantry, a student led organization that provides non-perishable, high protein food for UC Davis students struggling to pay for meals.
This was a really fun food drive, a vintage Unitrans London double decker was displayed in our parking lot and volunteers received community food donations all day long. Donors were invited to spin the wheel and win prizes provided by Unitrans, the first 50 donors received a free 10-ride Unitrans ticket.
The Co-op donated over $1000 in groceries and we got tons of donations from our owners and customers. All donations received were delivered to the UC Davis Pantry to assist those in need in campus and city community.
We want to thank all who donated and volunteered in this food drive.
