Commitment to Community

As a community owned market and deli we strive to create partnerships with as many local organizations possible.

The Commitment to Community program allows our Shareholders to volunteer at organizations within Brattleboro and the surrounding community to receive hours towards their monthly discount. Currently, this program credits up to four months or eight hours of time volunteering towards a Shareholder owner’s 5% monthly discount.

Feel free to reach out to them directly to schedule a time to help them out.

Working Shareholders can earn up to 8 Shareholder Work Hours (4 months of discount) per year by volunteering at a local non-profit (not affiliated with a religious or political organization).

Procedure:

  • Contact a local non-profit in Windham, Cheshire, or Franklin county of your choice to learn about current volunteer opportunities.
  • Once the volunteer hours are completed, have the volunteer supervisor at the non-profit send an email to shareholders@ brattleborofoodcoop.coop with the following information:
    1. Shareholder name
    2. Shareholder number
    3. Number of volunteer hours completed
    4. Date of hours completed
