Become a Member-Owner

You don’t have to join to shop at KNFC, but we hope you will.

KNFC is owned by more than 1,600 community members. We work together through combined purchasing power, capital, and labor, to achieve healthier living while encouraging local and organic production and community participation.

Membership at $25/year quickly pays for itself:

  • Members automatically receive 5% off all purchases.
  • Members who wish to volunteer in the store will qualify for an additional 2% discount per hour worked. The discount will apply to the following month up to a maximum of 25% for the entire month.
  • Members may special order case and bulk items for a special low rate of only 25% above our wholesale cost.
  • Members may order individual items from any of our catalogs. Regular member discount will apply.
  • Members are owners! Come to meetings, learn about store operations, volunteer in the store for additional discounts, and vote for officers, bylaws, and future plans for the store.

    Stop by the store to join!

A Community-Centered Business

You are the We in KNFC…

  • KNFC participates in downtown Kent events. We also donate to local charities that support the environment and provide social services.
  • KNFC promotes Main Street Kent, D.I.C.E, Standing Rock, and other cultural events in our display windows.
  • KNFC is committed to the development of Downtown Kent as a retail center and travel destination. This is an exciting time for downtown Kent, with bike paths converging, new infrastructure, and dozens of new buildings and businesses opening. We participate in downtown urban planning and coordinate with Kent cultural arts event planners.
