WHAT’S NEW AT THE CO-OP
Ukiah Natural Foods Rejuvenation Project
This summer Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op underwent a “Rejuvenation” project to improve your shopping experience. We widened the entryway, re-positioned the customer service counter and extended the checkout lanes. Grocery items were moved to make room for the expanded produce department adding new dry racks, a banana rack and bins for a variety of self-serve mixed greens. There is now a “Wall of Wine” making room for more local and international varietals. New to the Co-op and just in time for Fall, we are excited to offer a Soup and Salad bar! Providing even more “Food to Go” options available for your lifestyle on the go!

Launched in 2010, Non-GMO Month is the Non-GMO Project‘s largest outreach campaign. Citizens and organizations across North America are discovering the risks GMOs pose to our health, our families, and our environment.
Every October, Non-GMO Month provides a powerful opportunity to coordinate our voices and our actions. Across North America brands, retailers and individuals stand up for our right to know what’s in our food, and to choose non-GMO.
Protecting consumer choice and a non-GMO food supply require a multi-faceted approach and lots of team work. Together, we make Non-GMO Month happen by creating events, and spreading the word in our communities.
Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op is a natural foods grocery that has served Mendocino County in Northern California for 35 years. The store started as a small buying club among homesteaders and is now a full service grocery cooperatively owned by over 7,100 community members. One of the biggest perks of being a thriving business is that we can give back to our community. Whenever possible, we buy from local food producers.
What’s to love about food co-ops? So much! Co-ops have a cool way of doing things differently. They’re people working together for better food, stronger communities and a healthier world. And cooperative grocers are making a big impact. A new study, Healthy Foods Healthy Communities: The Social and Economic Impacts of Food Co-ops,* quantifies the impact food co-ops have as compared to conventional grocery stores. The study’s compelling results demonstrate the many ways that food co-ops do well while doing good.
