Round up throughout May for Appetite for Change in North Minneapolis.
All donations made at the register go to our SEED grant recipient, and often total over $20,000.
Thank you to everyone who rounded up for Sexual Violence Center in April. We are currently tallying totals.
Our SEED program really speaks to the power of our cooperative community. In March, 51,381 shoppers collectively donated $22,728 for Soup for You Cafe, a radical soup kitchen down the street from the Franklin store.

About Seward Co-op’s SEED Grant Program
For 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 Seward Co-op Creamery Café bill for recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community. As part of the staff-led selection process for 2019, owners and shoppers were invited to contribute further by voting for Community Choice SEED recipients.
