First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op History
First Alternative was founded in 1970 by a diverse group of concerned citizens and Oregon State University students. They were committed to offering education for people who wanted to adopt healthier lifestyles, and to provide the community with a source of high quality, nutritious foods at the lowest possible prices. To this day, we continue to strive to be a cooperative model, providing natural and organic food in community-oriented stores.
