Thank you for your interest in this program!
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.
The Co-op's Board of Directors has established the following policy and are organized under the following four themes:
Food assistance to alleviate hunger,
Community building (including support of regional agriculture),
Promotion of cooperative principles and activities
Environment, energy and sustainability.
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 is split between two other community partners. These two partners change on a monthly basis.
Community partners will be assigned as 20 percent partners based on alignment with the four themes above.
Applications are accepting on a rotating basis but are reviewed twice annually (December and July). Awards are made for the following 6 month period.
