Throughout our 40-year history, Seward Co-op has been committed to giving back to our community. In 2011, we introduced a new way for customers to deliver on this commitment.
SEED is focused on organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community and/or support our P6 initiative — products that are local, cooperatively-owned/non-profit, and small farmer/producer. Make charitable donations on an ongoing basis, during your transactions at the register, by rounding up your total to the nearest dollar or adding whatever amount you'd like to donate.

Interested in Becoming a SEED recipient?
Interested organizations can submit an application to be included on the rotating monthly schedule of recipients. One month each quarter will be reserved for a food shelf. Seward Co-op may preempt the schedule for special circumstances such as disaster relief.
Recipient organizations are selected based upon how well their mission and goals align with Seward Co-op's Ends and P6 criteria. The SEED program does not subsidize partisan organizations or organizations that advance a particular religious belief.
