Round Up For Change for your community!

Since December 2020, customers have generously “rounded-up” their change for local community organizations. It’s simple. When you are paying for your purchases at the registers, you can “round up” to the nearest dollar as a community contribution to non-profits. 

Each month, we offer support to non-profits to extend our cooperative’s work and meet our Ends Policies.

The goal of Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Round-Up program is to raise funds for initiatives in Windham County that work in partnership with us to extend our cooperative’s work and meet our Ends Policies.
