Our outreach team welcomes everyone to enjoy our store and the wonderful products we offer. You may also see us at a local farmers market, health fair or community event, so please stop and say hello!
For forty-five years, the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op has been owned by thousands of members of the community. Our store works for the benefit of the communities it serves, providing a wide selection of quality products and a connection to the people who grow and produce them.
The Co-op maintains programs that strengthen access to healthy foods, educate the community about how to prepare them, and celebrate Sacramento’s Farm to Fork culture.
The Co-op also partners with countless organizations to expand this work and offers its customers simple ways to help support local food assistance agencies, sustainable agriculture, and other important issues in our community.
To apply, fill out the application at the Co-op’s Customer Service Desk, be sure to bring your ID and proof of assistance from one of the qualifying programs with you.
