Campbell’s Nutrition was founded by the Campbell family in 1937. A natural food store in the year’s just following the Great Depression was very unique and way ahead of its time. The Campbell’s dreamed of a healthier community and they had a passion for nutrition. The first natural food store location was downtown on Locust Street.
Diane Lahodny, a Drake student from Hawaii, took at job at Campbell’s Nutrition while attending college. She fell in love with the business and with the help of her family, purchased the store and became the sole owner in 1995. Soon in 1999 Campbell's in Urbandale opened! Thanks to the community, Campbell's has been running strong for over 75 years!
