FoCo Cafe: Manuela Girotti

Manuela Girotti, an Italian immigrant and postdoctoral fellow in mathematics at CSU, found FoCo Cafe after searching online for a local volunteering opportunity. Reminded of a restaurant she encountered on her universities campus run by students for the community, Manuela loved the concept of caring for those in need locally. What surprised her the most was FoCo Cafe's emphasis on providing "organic and quality food" to their customers since "everyone deserves good food". Manuela's favorite jobs revolve around preparing food and talking with customers, "I love cooking, chopping vegetables and talking with the customers". FoCo Cafe has also provided her a means of "getting to know people and her city" while "helping build a tighter community". (Davis Bonner | Collegian)
