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!
July 23rd, 2015 Update: Major Changes to SAF7LA/DARK Act - Lawmakers will likely make several revisions to The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling (aka DARK) Act at the House subcommittee level before recommending that it be voted upon by the full House. The most recently revised version of the bill includes some significant changes (see our updated GMO Labeling: A Pivotal Moment article on ST.coop). NCG advocates for mandatory labeling of GMO foods as a consumer right-to-know issue, and therefore opposes this bill.
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.
Even in tight years and economic decline, Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op is working harder than ever to make sure we are doing what we can in our communities to help those in need. The Co-op staff and member-owners support the good work of many charitable organizations in the communities we serve. Each month, the Co-op donates food and nonfood products to the needy in our area. Co-op baristas donate tips on a monthly basis. We are proud that the member-owners and staff of the Co-op are able to give so much to our community!
