The Pennies for Change program is one of the Co-op’s many giving programs. Customers can donate their change to our community partners by rounding at the registers to the next full dollar amount.
Food assistance to alleviate hunger,
Community building (including support of regional agriculture),
Promotion of cooperative principles and activities
Environment, energy and sustainability.
The Co-op's Board of Directors has established the following policy and are organized under the following four themes:
All applicants must be a 501(c) 3 organization. If you have any questions, please call 603-640-6340 or email aprilharkness [at] coopfoodstore.com (April Harkness.)
Of the funds collected each month, 60 percent goes to our food access partners: LISTEN Community Services, Upper Valley Haven, and Willing Hands. The remaining 40 percent will be split between two other community partners. These two partners change on a monthly basis.
Funds have already been allocated through December 2018. If you’d like apply for 2019, there will be two cycles of application deadlines:
FIRST DEADLINE: September 1st, 2018 (applicants will be notified of decisions November 2018)
