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.

The goal of Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Round Up For Change 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. 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.

October 2022 recipients are:
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Vermont and the Windham County Humane Society
Loaves & Fishes is a wholly volunteer-driven community kitchen that has been supplying meals to hungry residents of Windham County for 35 years (twice a week/every single week). 

Meals are available to anyone in the Brattleboro area

regardless of situation; no questions asked.  Although they work out of a church basement, there is no religious affiliation.

Funds raised will go directly to supporting the organization’s current needs. 

Housed in the Centre Congregational Church, Brattleboro (no available online link)

Brattleboro Coalition for Active Transportation (BCAT) promotes safe, healthy, accessible transportation for people of all abilities, ages, and incomes, through the normalization of active, non-automobile transportation.

Funds raised will be used wholly toward the completion of the Dero Vizor Bike Shelter’s covered bike parking project on the Whetstone pathway.
