Party for a cause: Fundraiser for the UW Student Food Cooperative
In a town of beloved co-ops, there's always room for one more. So we're excited that University of Washington students are launching their own food cooperative to ensure a supply of healthy and organic prepared foods within easy reach. Even better, much of it is grown right on campus! The rest they hope to source from local farmers and artisans.

Right now, they need seed money (pun intended) to buy a food cart to better distribute the goodness. Join them for a fundraiser dinner and dessert auction (plus live music and dance performances!) 6 p.m. Saturday, May 29 at OmCulture, 2210 N. Pacific St. in Seattle, right near Gasworks Park. Tickets are $11 for students and $18 for the general public (visit Brown Paper Tickets to buy them in advance) or $15 for students/$22 general public at the door.

Help them get their start.
