May SEED recipient: Wirth Cooperative Grocery
Wirth Cooperative Grocery is in the planning phase for building a store in North Minneapolis in the spring of 2016. Wirth seeks to build community and provide diverse, healthy food choices that reflect the needs of its immediate and surrounding neighborhoods.
So far this month, 29,337 customers have donated $13,044 to Wirth Cooperative Grocery.
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.
