Round It Up Donation Drive for NOFA-NH

Our co-op held a month-long Round It Up Donation Drive to benefit the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH) Farm Share Program.

Together, co-op shoppers donated $5,388.16 to NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program.

The Monadnock Food Co-op’s Round It Up program empowers shoppers to make a positive change in their community by donating their change to local community organizations and efforts.

NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program provides limited income New Hampshire residents with discounted Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares. The program benefits children, families, and seniors by connecting low-income individuals with certified organic farms to provide a season’s worth of local farm fresh products at a reduced cost.

Since 2017, the Farm Share Program has partnered with 13 certified organic farmers to provide over 250 low-income NH residents with 77 subsidized farm shares.Β  Participating farms in the Monadnock Region include Abenaki Springs Farm in Walpole, Picadilly Farm in Winchester, and Stonewall Farm in Keene.

“NOFA-NH is proud to support organic farms in providing delicious, healthy, local food to our community members in need,” said Laura Hartz, President of NOFA-NH Board of Directors. “With the help of the funds raised by the Monadnock Food Co-op, this program will reach even more farmers and eaters across the Granite State.”
