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.
