Chico Natural Foods Co-op

Chico Natural Foods Co-op is a natural foods consumer cooperative, which means we’re owned by our shoppers! Anyone can become an owner, and everyone can shop here regardless of ownership.  Owners receive a portion of our profits each year.  A board of directors (democratically elected by owners) holds responsibility for ensuring the Chico Natural Foods Co-op meets the needs of the owners and that our resources are used wisely.

Our History

In 1973, 15 Chico families banded together as a buying club to bring a new way of choosing food to the local community. They wanted an alternative to food that was over-processed, sugary, or contained pesticides, herbicides, and artificial additives. The buying club grew from a parking lot meeting-spot to a store front. Chico Natural Foods Co-op now serves over 3000 active owners with gross annual sales nearing $6 million.

Food for Change movie night at Chico Natural Foods Co-op

We’re excited to bring this history of food co-ops to our members and the community.  We’re proud to be part of that history, and hope you will join us!

Call (530) 891-1713 to confirm the location for the show.
