Umpqua Local Goods is a social enterprise, created through a partnership between NeighborWorks Umpqua and Phoenix Charter School. We operate on a quadruple bottom line, investing in four social causes to work to make our community a better place.
The store facilitates retail programming for alternative high school students to learn valuable skills, provides an outlet for local artisans and farmers to sell goods, allows food entrepreneurs to test and create value-added products in our licensed commercial kitchen, and gives downtown residents access to healthy and affordable food options. All products on the shelf are made in Oregon, with most handcrafted or grown by Umpqua Valley residents. Stop by for a visit or contact us for more information.
All proceeds from sales funnel directly back into the program. By shopping at the store, you help support small businesses, invest in education and future community leaders, and strengthen the local economy.
We are continually working to improve this site as well as the store. Contact us with comments and questions. We appreciate your support.
