Roanoke Natural Foods Co-op is not just a natural foods store. Built into our mission statement – and the cooperative principles we uphold – is a commitment to our community.
When we are able, the Co-op funnels its dollars back into the community by participating in special events and assisting local non-profit organizations, through donations of gift certificates or product to community groups whose missions we support.
Some of this year’s projects include:
- Sponsorships of:
- Blue Ridge Public Television’s Open Mic
- Fall Waterways Cleanup and Celebration
- SPCA annual Dog Walk
- WVTF Public Radio
- Donations of food, money, or gift certificates:
- Bradley Free Clinic, monthly dinner for volunteer medical professionals
- Camp Roanoke
- Clean Valley Council
- Glenvar Elementary
- Explore Park
- Northside Middle
- Pink Ribbon Affair
- RAIL Solution
- Raleigh Court Elementary
- Virginia Heights Elementary
The Co-op is interested in helping groups focus on responsible environmental practices and in new ideas and community activities.
