Monadnock Food Co-op Shoppers Donate over $6K to Food Connects in August

Shoppers at the Monadnock Food Co-op collectively donated $6,032.74 to Food Connects. In August, the Monadnock Food Co-op collected these donations during their month-long “Round It Up” donation drive. Customers rounded up their purchases to donate their change to Food Connects.

“Food Connects is incredibly inspired and grateful for the outpouring of community support,” said Richard Berkfield, Executive Director and Founder of Food Connects. “We recognize the need for robust Farm to School programs throughout the region to help our children thrive and grow. Our community stepped up to nourish these programs in a big way, and we are so excited for the potential growth and future projects we want to bring to the Monadnock Region.”
