First Alternative Community Programs

First Alternative Co-op is a community-based, socially and environmentally aware business. The Co-op works for the development of the community through environmental incentive programs, monetary donations to organizations chosen by Co-op members, and by offering services and opportunities to the community at large.

Co-op Community Activities

The goal of Co-op Community activities are to offer opportunities to connect Co-op Owners with each other, with staff and with the Board of Directors in social and community service based activities. These activities are scheduled quarterly and may include field trips to farms or local businesses, community service activities, potluck picnics, nature walks, etc. Want to learn more about the Co-op Community?

Alternative Transportation

First Alternative offers an incentive card to encourage you to walk, bicycle, take the bus, or use another form of alternative transportation to get to the Co-op. If you take alternative transportation and spend $10 or more, get a punch on your card. Once you have 15 punches, redeem it for $5 off your grocery bill.
