One way we live out our cooperative values at Open Harvest is through robust community donations. The Seed Program is a new simple yet powerful community giving opportunity that allows customers to “round-up” their grocery bill for local organizations that share a commitment to a healthy community, sustainable food system, and strong local economy.
In early 2020, we are excited to offer owners, staff, and customers the opportunity to nominate their favorite local non-profit to be one of the eight 2020 Community Choice recipients of this monthly giving at the register. Community Choice recipients will be selected through a staff led committee and by our very own co-op owners!
Final selections will be announced in February and our first rounding up will start in March! During a specified month, each organization will be featured and all round-up contributions during that month will be given directly to the recipient organization at the end of each month.
