Quincy, CA: Quincy Natural Foods Co-op
October 22, 2016Free
Quincy Natural Foods Co-op
Quincy Natural Foods Co-op was originally known as Feather River Food Co-op. Over the years the name and location changed but the mission remained the same: bring affordable, healthy foods to the residents of Plumas County. In 2003 we moved to our present location on Main Street, which we purchased and renovated with lots of help from our member-owners in 2002. Then, in 2013, we opened a second store in Portola, calling it by our namesake – Feather River Food Cooperative. Now, with a member-ownership of more than 1,500 and a Board of Directors working to develop the vision, QNFC and FRFC have great support and are able to give back to the community in a multitude of ways. That’s because we’re not just grocery stores, we’re cooperatives. Cooperatives are designed to work for their member-owners, providing them with the goods and services they collectively want. We’re not profit driven the way corporations with investors tend to be. Instead we’re community driven: owned by community members, directed by democratically elected member-owners, and, according to the international Cooperative Principles, out of concern for community we provide education, training, and information.
We partner with local farms and families to bring you high quality produce, meat, eggs and merchandise!
