Round Up For Change for your community!

Round Up for 2021Since December of 2020, customers have generously “rounded up” their change for local community organizations. It’s simple. When you are paying for your purchases at our registers, you can “round up” to the nearest dollar as a community contribution to local non-profits. There are two organizations featured each month to give your support to.

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.
