Co-op Shoppers Donate over $5K to Cornucopia Project in June

Woo-hoo!  Co-op shoppers collectively donated $5,101.91 to the Cornucopia Project. The Monadnock Food Co-op collected these donations during their month-long “Round It Up” donation drive in June. Customers rounded up their purchases to donate their change to the Cornucopia Project.

“All of us at Cornucopia Project extend our great appreciation to everyone who rounded it up in June,” said Lauren Judd, Executive Director. “Thank you to the Monadnock Food Co-op for supporting our work in youth nutrition education and local food.”

The Co-op’s Round It Up donation program empowers shoppers to make a positive change in their community by rounding up their change for local nonprofits. During the Co-op’s last fiscal year, the Round It Up program raised over $65,864 and supported ten organizations.

Cornucopia Project shows youth how to grow and prepare nourishing food, planting seeds for a lifetime of healthy eating. By introducing garden, kitchen, and farm programs to students from preschool onward, Cornucopia Project prioritizes learning rooted in practicality, sustainability, and community health. Their developmentally targeted programs help individuals understand nutrition and the plant life we depend on. Cornucopia Project’s programs are fun and delicious!
