Morrisville Food Co-op is committed to community!

An important part of the Co-op’s mission is to strengthen our community – socially, environmentally, and economically.

One of the ways in which we support Lamoille County non-profit organizations, is through our program;

‘Round It Up for Change’.

Here’s how the program works:

Staff members will offer Co-op shoppers the option to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, every time they check out. At the end of the collection period, those funds are donated to the chosen nonprofit.

Criteria to apply:

Organization must be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered in Lamoille County. Organization’s work must align with the Co-op’s mission.

(Please note that the Co-op does not donate to individuals, partisan organizations or organizations that advance a particular religious view.)

Application Process:

All five recipients for the program are chosen via voting by Co-op members at the annual meeting and through absentee voting opportunities at Morrisville Food Co-op.

The Co-op’s responsibility is to raise awareness of the sponsored organization: Information on nonprofit recipient will be provided on the in-store bulletin board, on signage at the point of sale, on our website and in the “The Beet” eNewsletter.
