Community Programs

At Community Natural Foods we are dedicated to encouraging Calgarians and Canadians alike to live a healthier, more natural life and strive to support the health and well-being of our community.  We do this by following the moto of “Doing Business Right”, while trying to be good members of the community in which our business exists. 

When you shop at a Community Natural Foods Market you can access a variety of health expertise through our passionate and knowledge staff or through some of the many great speakers that present at our free to attend public lecture series.  You can access many great weekly in store specials on a large variety of quality products that are natural, organic and sustainable in nature.   You can access the many great relationships we have spent time cultivating from community partners to relationships with local vendors and producers.  You can benefit from Community’s sponsorship and donations programs, or you can learn more about some of the amazing not-for-profit organizations that we try to shine the spot light on that do amazing things for people, the community and our planet!
