SEED: Seward Co-op's Donation Program

July SEED recipient: Hope Community

Image

Located at Franklin and Portland Avenues in Minneapolis, Hope has been building community places, connections, and power since 1977. 2016 SEED funds will support work with more than 200 youth and adults to build strong community through food. Opportunities include a network of community gardens for growing, a community kitchen for shared meals and stories, seasonal celebrations of food and culture, and community leadership to shape local food policy.

So far in July, 40,035 customers have donated $17,560 to Hope Community.


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.
