Education & Outreach Programs

Education and Outreach is one of the most important (and fun) parts of our Co-op!

We love participating in events that bring together people from all over our community.

You may also see us pop up in unexpected places with our famous Pop-Up Stands or even during our Finals Success campus giveaways!

Co+op Basics & Cal-Fresh Outreach at UCSB Financial Aid Office
When you see a friendly Co-op Outreach Team member in our store or out in the community, you can be sure to walk away with some Co-op inspiration (and usually a snack and coupon).

The Co-op also hosts many events, tastings, and tours at the store and on our patio!

We also can reserve our patio for your meeting, study group, or even your own event with enough planning and notice.
