Do you currently sell produce to the Co-op? 
Would you like to? 
The Produce Department is hosting the inaugural Local Farmer Meeting. This meeting is for all current and potential farmers who supply the Co-op with seasonal, fresh, organic and sustainably grown produce. Our intention is to explain our operations, what we are looking for when purchasing local produce, what helps us sell more produce, and expand the availability of local produce in our store. Also we will be handing out by preseason-planning sheets that explains what and how much produce we want to see on our shelves for the 2015 growing season.
We will discuss:
Growing Standards
Buying guidelines
Delivery schedules
Grower’s agreements
2015 preseason planning

Drinks and snacks will be provided by the Co-op!
A Year to Love The Co-op
Many of us have been in love with our Co-op for years. It's a place to buy delicious and healthy food, get in conversations with people in the community, and it's a member-owned organization that builds our community economically and socially. Chico Natural Foods Co-op helps strengthen Chico's sense of self.
       This year the Board of Directors faces exciting challenges and opportunities with the hunt for a new and larger location where we will be able to serve many more people. If you love the Co-op, this is the year to realize the power of your ownership and make your voice heard.
       Did you know that nearly a third of CNFC shoppers are not owners? Help us by telling your friends why Co-op ownership is important to you. Tell them about local food independence, how small farmers are supported by the store's purchasing power, and how the store is democratically guided. Tell them you own Chico's best and most vibrant grocery store.
        This is the year to engage with this place you love, because what we all do at the Co-op this year will leave an imprint on our community for a generation. Please stay in contact with the board this year, we love hearing from you.
