SEED: Seward Co-op's Donation Program

October SEED recipient: Community Emergency Service, Inc.


Community Emergency Service has been feeding hungry people in our neighborhood for more than four decades, providing groceries and hot meals for 2,500 people monthly. SEED funds will help the organization provide holiday food f or neighbors in need this season.

So far this month, 35,185 customers have donated $15,437 to Community Emergency Service.

ImageFor 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.
