Volunteer Opportunities 

Berkeley Student Food Collective Member

Students at UC Berkeley opened the Food Collective in 2010 to gain control over our food system to make it better. We do this by running an educational grocery store: we want our members — and the public — to learn more about struggles for justice in the food system, alongside a community center stocked with affordable, healthy, sustainable, and food sourced from farmers and vendors working hardest toward building a more equitable world.

Members volunteer in the store on a weekly basis and on committees to earn a 10% discount on all our food, elect our Board of Directors, hire staff, and deliberate, collaborate and vote on critical store issues.

Deadline: Rolling Applications
