SEED: Seward Co-op's Donation Program

October SEED recipient: Nawayee Center School


Nawayee is an Ojibwe word that means "the center" and for over 40 years Center School has been a fixture in the Phillips neighborhood, the heart of the Minneapolis Native American community. Funds will enhance Nawayee Center School's Nutrition Program, which provides educational life skills for growing, accessing, preserving, sharing, and eating healthy foods in traditional Native ways.

So far this month, 29,498 customers have donated $13,023 to Nawyee Center School.

ImageFor more than 45 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.
