Our April Calendar is now available! We're striving to remain a place for community connection, comfort, and empowerment, no matter what other changes come our way 💚 There are still plenty of fun things coming up to keep you engaged and excited from a distance - such as National Beer Day, the perfect excuse to try a new locally-crafted brew 🍻 virtual yoga from Yoga Isla Vista 🧘‍♀️ an Instagram Live concert from the Co-op Patio with Conner Cherland 🎸 Lucidity Festivals FREE virtual festival experience 🎶 and the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on the 22nd! Keep an eye on our social media for fun eco-friendly surprises 🌎
In-store, we are keeping our customers up-to-date with all our changing policies which ensure a safe, calm, and nurturing shopping experience (see below for the most recent report). We have our regularly-scheduled Co+Op Deals sales flyers still available, we're continuing our Love Local Owner 2x Points perk to support as many local producers as we can during this unprecedentedly challenging time, and we are rolling out a Curbside Grocery Pickup Owner perk to enable contact-free grocery shopping 🛒 We are also still having our 2020 Board of Directors Election, with voting now 100% online and open until April 30th! VOTE!
We've also included information about various outreach efforts happening across Isla Vista to support those affected by the crisis (shoutout to Food Not Bombs - Isla Vista, SB County Foodbank, and UCSB's Student Foodbank for providing services at this time!) and ways you can benefit, if you're in need, or get involved to help, if you're able.
Stay strong, keep your pantry stocked, and remember - we are all #6FeetApartButTogetherAtHeart

These sales are an in-store benefit of our Co-op's membership in the 150+ food co-op strong National Co-op Grocers! You do not have to be a member to receive these great prices, they're for everyone :)

Thank you for your understanding when some sale items are not available at this time.

        Dear IV Food Co-op Owners:

In these unprecedented times, we feel that it is more important than ever to commit to local, healthy food and the cooperative process. To that end, the Board of Directors has voted to continue the 2020 IVFC Board of Directors Election  with several changes to protect the well-being of our workers, owners and customers. 
  • The 2020 Election will take place entirely online
  • The voting timeframe has been expanded, now from March 23 through April 30
As always, all Owners have a vote! Meet the candidates and exercise your democratic owner control online. 

Thank you for being part of our community.

In cooperation,
The IVFC Board of Directors Election Committee
