Community

Valley Natural Foods Co-op works in partnership with the South Metro community to support health and well-being through education and expertise in local, sustainable food and wellness services.
— Valley Natural Foods Mission Statement

Our mission is for a healthy community and we believe in supporting initiatives to educate and provide for its well-being.

Some initiatives include:

  • Partnering with our shoppers through the Register Roundup program. Shoppers have the option of rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar. Proceeds go to providing healthy snacks for Echo Park Elementary School, Open Door Food Pantry, and others.
  • Hosting an annual Celebrate Local Festival at the co-op where over 1,000 people attend to sample food,  local farmers and vendors, and enjoy family activities.
  • Donating food to local food shelves.
  • Hosting classes to help educate on topics such as health and wellness, special diets and more!
