Shoppers at the Monadnock Food Co-op collectively donated $3,753 to the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH). We held a month-long Round It Up Donation Drive during September to support the NOFA-NH’s 2020 Farm Share Program. Customers rounded up their purchases to donate their change to support this organization.
NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program provides funds for limited-income individuals and families to purchase certified organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares, at a discounted rate. The program has partnered with 11 certified organic farms to reach over 135 low-income individuals since 2017.
“Delicious and healthy local food for all is so important,” said Amy Manzelli, NOFA-NH Board President. “NOFA-NH is proud to support small organic family farms in the fight against food insecurity.”
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 agencies like the Cornucopia Project, Community Garden Connections, and The Community Kitchen. During the Co-op’s last fiscal year, the Round It Up program raised over $36,700 and supported seven non-profits.
The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to building a community of organic food activists and educated consumers to help support New Hampshire’s local organic farming community. Find out more at nofanh.org.
