Chico Natural Foods Coop will be screening Food for Change during National Co-op Month, October 2016. Details are being worked out. Stay tuned!
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.
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.
