Spring Green Gala Fundraiser for The Expansion was a Success

The Spring Green Gala Benefit for The KNFC Expansion was a great success!   It was a beautiful evening at The Masonic Temple on West Main Street in Kent, last Saturday, May 31.

Thank you to all who donated their time, goods, and services to the event!   It was a fantastic convergence of  elegant atmosphere, fine food, excellent company, and an exciting silent auction.  Together we raised over $1,500 for the expansion!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to get ready to break ground.  Architectural Drawings have been submitted and approved.  Various individuals representing different trades have been contacted and interviewed.   Financing has been approved and we’re in the last stages of planning before we begin our expansion.  We hope to hire a General Contractor at our next Board Meeting  and begin the construction in July or early August.

Stay tuned!

State of the Co-op 6/30/13

Annual Meeting of the Kent Natural Foods Co-op General Membership

State of the Co-op Address by KNFC Vice-President Fred Pierre

I welcome the members of the Kent Natural Foods Co-op. You may have joined because you like to eat healthy, to participate in the ownership of a downtown grocery, or because you have a vote and a voice in the cooperative. You may have joined because you believe in the principles of open membership and democratic decision-making, or because you want to help grow a local,member-owned business. Whatever the reason, you have succeeded by making healthy, local and organic food more available.

Kent Natural Foods Co-op provides services that go beyond the traditional commercial grocery. Over the last 42 years in business, we have offered educational materials and workshops, sponsored local food events, and helped customers locate hard-to-find foods, vitamins and ecological household products. We have worked hard to stock product lines that are cruelty-free, non-toxic and sustainably produced, in addition to providing gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian products. We look for products with minimal, or recyclable packaging. We purchase from local sources whenever possible, to reduce the fossil fuel consumption for shipping. The store recycles almost all of its waste, and composts its leftover produce for our vegetable and herb garden.
