Everyone can shop.
Anyone can join.

Quincy Natural Foods Cooperative and Feather River Food Cooperative are member-owned consumer cooperatives.
When you become an owner, not only will you enjoy owner benefits, you’ll own a piece of the business.

It’s easy to join
  1. Stop by customer service, read, complete, and sign an Ownership Application & Agreement. Or download the form here, fill it out and bring it in to customer service.
  2. Pay the annual $20 or the bi-annual $10 to start. After your annual or bi-annual period, renew with an additional $10-$20 payment.  Continue to renew yearly until your $300 Equity Investment is fully paid. Renewing keeps your ownership active and eligible for all benefits (or make the full $300 Equity Investment).
