First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op and its Owners contribute to many local charitable organizations every year through multiple donation programs. Kindness is a principle that is embedded in First Alternative Co-op's mission. Here are just a few examples from 2018
January and March 2018
The Co-op donated food and funds to these worthy events in support of justice and peace for the women and children of our community.
At this celebratory event, attendees enjoyed samples of local wine and food at The Vue and raised funds for the Good Samaritan Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Fund.
Generous community members donated bicycles to this program run by fair trade partner, Alaffia. Through the program, these bicycles are given to students in Togo, West Africa to help keep them on the road to a good education.
Families patronizing the Co-op’s booth at this outdoor summer concert helped raise money for the Corvallis Environmental Center’s educational SAGE garden that also donates fresh produce to local food banks.
