Round Up For Change for your community!

It’s easy to participate. At check-out, our cashiers will ask you if you would like to “round up” your purchase total to the nearest dollar allowing you to conveniently support a community contribution to the two organizations we feature each month.

Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Round Up For Change program aims 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. We reserve the right to deny anyone that does not specifically align with our cooperative’s work and Ends Policies. 

The Brattleboro Food Coop exists primarily to provide healthy, locally grown, organic, and fairly traded food and goods to our community. Our charitable giving efforts are currently focused on feeding under-served communities and related issues such as food insecurity, food justice, and food sovereignty.

If you are a local non-profit organization wishing to be considered as a participant in this program, please fill out the application at the bottom of this page. Click here to go directly to our application.

January 2023 recipients are:
BRATTLEBORO SKI HILL: Living Memorial Snowsports 

This is a 100% volunteer organization that offers inexpensive ($5 dollars a day) local downhill skiing and riding—in 45 open days; they had over 5,500 patrons during the winter of 2021.

The funds raised will go toward repaying the pump debt and, if any is left over, to the groomer maintenance.

Spark—Teacher Education Institute is a community-based teacher education program that places interns in schools across 

Brattleboro. Its curriculum embraces food and environmental justice that aligns with the Brattleboro Food Co-op’s values and mission.

The funds raised will be used for a scholarship to support two teachers of color to attend Spark Teacher Education Institute — specifically, they will help these teachers with tuition and living expenses.
