We recognize that the Co-op is an important resource for our community to access healthy food to stock their pantries, replenish cleaning supplies, and purchase wellness products. As we continue to offer essential services to the community, we are also doing everything we can to minimize risk for staff and shoppers.
In light of the current news about COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, the Co-op is taking additional steps for the health of shoppers and staff members.
When we established the Positive Change program in January of this year, our goal was to raise $500 to $1,000 each month. After the numbers were tallied at the end of the first month, we were amazed to discover our community had stepped up with $2,465.11 to donate to Community Works!
With fewer recycling options, and plastic waste wreaking havoc on ecosystems all over the world, it's long past time to look at our options and make efforts to reduce plastic waste.

Rogue Valley Farm to School educates children about our food system through hands-on farm and garden programs, and by increasing local foods in school meals. They inspire an appreciation of local agriculture that improves the economy and environment of our community and the health of its members.
