The Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op’s Community Learning Center & Cooking School is just one way we are working to fulfill our purpose to be trusted source of natural foods and products and a reliable source for consumer information.
Our program offers something for everyone — from cooking classes and wellness seminars to gardening workshops and farm to fork events — to make connections about important food, health and environmental issues.
The Co-op is committed to supporting organic local family farms and small producers of high quality food. We highlight these growers and producers in our store and cooking classes.
All classes and events are held in the Co-op Community Learning Center & Cooking School at 1914 Alhambra Blvd. unless otherwise noted. Pre-registration is required for all classes. Fees are due at the time of registration.
