Round Up for Change January Recipient – Berkshire Grown January 2nd, 2018

Everytime you shop at the Co-op, your cashier asks if you’d like to round up your total to the nearest dollar so your spare change can make BIG CHANGE in our community. Each month, all of the money collected through Round Up for Change is donated to a local non-profit that was selected by our Owners. During the month of January, all your change will support the good work being done at Berkshire Grown.

Berkshire Grown supports and promotes local agriculture as a vital part of the Berkshire community, economy and landscape.

They do this by…

  • Advocating for farmers
  • Supporting Good Agricultural Practices
  • Fostering education and outreach
  • Increasing community access to local food
  • Networking farmers and food buyers
  • Promoting locally-grown and produced food
  • Promoting economic development by focusing on the viability of the agricultural economy
