SEED: Seward Co-op's Donation Program

September SEED recipient: Sabathani Food Shelf

Sabathani Community Center provides people of all ages and cultures with essential resources that inspire them to improve their lives and build a thriving community. SEED donations will support Sabathani’s Food Shelf, a component of the Family Resources Program. Funding will increase the amount of fresh, healthy and culturally-appropriate food choices, helping to reduce health disparities between low-income families of color and the majority population.


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 bill for recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community.
