The Flaming Eggplant Cafe is a student run, non-hierarchical worker collective cafe at the Evergreen State College. All major decisions are made in all staff meetings using consensus. We have a strong focus on providing local organic food options that are affordable to college students.


“The Flaming Eggplant Café exists to provide a non-corporate food option to people at The Evergreen State College located on occupied Nisqually and Squaxin land, in Olympia, WA. As a student-run collective, we make efforts to source our food carefully, considering the impact of our vendors and distributors – balancing rising food costs and declining planetary stability while recognizing unjust treatment of workers and the world-wide effects of greenwashing. We prioritize our worker’s needs and education while providing learning experience in food service and cooperative management. The café is intended to be a safer space that opposes systemic oppression, where students, faculty, and staff can hold events, organize, decompress, and –  importantly – eat.”
