Buying groceries at Valley Natural Foods is the first step to eating healthy. Our co-op’s education program turns your steps into a stride toward living healthy and eventually a movement toward being healthy for life.

Our educational initiatives include food-tasting demonstrations with recipes, cooking classes and gardening classes to get you moving toward a healthy new you.

Whether you want to transform your lifestyle or you only want tips to make healthy living easier; we are here to guide you. Simply buying healthy groceries does not automatically create change. It takes time, hands-on experience, inspiration and caring support. Valley Natural Foods’ is a pillar you can lean. Discover hands-on experience in cooking and gardening classes that hone your skills and techniques. Spark inspiration at food-tasting demonstrations, helping bring life to your next meal. We care about creating a flourishing healthy community. Being healthy creates a web of actively engaged members who positively contribute back to this community, making it stronger and better connected, increasing the ability to cooperate and collaborate for a brighter future. Become part of this movement and be healthy with us!
