November SEED recipient: Waite House Neighborhood Center
Waite House trains neighborhood teens in community culinary arts and food justice. Funds raised would support the community based portion of their training - in Southside Kitchen providing healthy, made-from-scratch, free meals daily to neighborhood youth.
So far this month, 38,892 customers have donated $17,820 to Waite House.
For more than 40 years, Seward Co-op has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2011, we introduced SEED, a new way for customers to participate in this commitment. This simple yet powerful community giving program allows customers to “round-up” their grocery or cafe bill for recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community.
