Co+op Basics: Starts Today!

Lower prices start today with our Co+op Basics program here at SLO Natural Foods Co-op! Because of our membership in the National Co+op Grocers (NCG) we're now able to offer everyday low prices (EDLP) on many of the foods and products you use everyday. We're able to purchase products at a lower cost and will pass the savings on to you.

Co+op Basics items will offer significant savings; you'll find both value-priced brands such as Field Day and name brand items as well. We will be adding more products over the next few months as they become available.

Look for the purple tags with the Co+op Basics logo and start saving today!
Special Orders Through UNFI
Our main distributor for grocery and household items, United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) is no longer printing their catalogs. The June-December 2016 catalog was the last hard copy printed.
The catalog can now be viewed from your computer, tablet, or phone. Please bookmark this site so that you can refer to it for special orders.
For those of you who place your orders here at the Co-op, we do have a store copy of UNFI's last printed catalog.

Health Fair Fun

Our Third Annual Health Fair last Saturday was a great success! The rain held off and we enjoyed seeing so many familiar faces as well as meeting people new to the Co-op. We even had a few folks join as new Member-Owners.

Thanks to all of our generous vendors; the wellness vendors who shared samples, raffle prizes, and plenty of product knowledge and our food vendors, who sampled out delicious and nutritious food for all of us.
Co-op Board Meetings: Member-Owners are Invited
We encourage Co-op Member-Owners to attend the monthly Co-op Board Meetings, now being held on the third Thursday of the month.
