Community Support

Annually, we give gift cards, cash, and food donations to a variety of organizations throughout the community. School fundraisers, community health & wellness events, youth programs, animal rescue organizations, art & culture enrichment efforts, environmental solution workshops, food shelves, crisis foundations, literacy programs – working with these groups and more is how we connect and strengthen our community.

Classes

Our class lineup has a bit of something for everyone…and a new classroom to boot!  We have, once again, partnered with the Common Ground Community Kitchen at Messiah Lutheran Church for our cooking classes to provide a more hands-on cooking experience.

Change Within Reach

The Change Within Reach round-up program gives consumers the chance to contribute to community organizations in a way that does not break the bank but cumulatively makes a huge impact to the recipient. Every month, a local non-profit organization is selected to be the recipient of all funds donated through the round-up program. Customers donate to the program by allowing their purchase amount to be rounded up to the next highest dollar. Since the program started in April of 2014, Natural Harvest customers have raised over $42,500; in 2016 alone over $14,500 was raised. We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who participate in this program.

As a sponsor we contribute funding, host an information booth with games, samples, and free literature. Our deli also caters the lunch for the whole event, this year we sold over 200 lunches. https://www.irpsmn.org/earthfest/

 

Annual Co-op Fest

This is an outside event that we host at our co-op to support our local farmers. We work with work with other small businesses to provide live music, craft beer, and children’s activities such as a bouncy house. Our deli also caters the event. The purpose is to raise funds and awareness for our local farmers.

Classes

The Davis Food Co-op holds cooking classes in the Teaching Kitchen at 537 G Street, across the street from the Co-op. Most are Demonstration style. In these classes, the instructor will demonstrate how to make the dishes and give you samples. Classes designated as Hands On allow you to participate in the cooking. All Kids classes are hands on and accommodate children from age 3 to 6 or 7-12 depending on the class level. Children who can speak well enough to be understood and are potty trained are welcome. Teen classes are hands on and open to students aged 12-18.

Keep an eye on our calendar for free workshops taught on our patio! These cover topics like Grain Salads, Cold Brew Coffee and Tea and Quick Pickles. Follow us on Facebook to get notified when these are scheduled.

Round Up at the Registers

Loose change really adds up! Round Up At The Registers is our answer to scrip. Next time you check out, say “I’d like to Round Up,” and we’ll turn that change into a sturdy check for the school of the month. You can donate more if you like, just tell the cashier to round up to your preferred amount. This program is available to all DJUSD elementary & junior high PTAs
