When visiting the Orcas Food Co-op during the month of May, the Co-op Community Hero Program gives you three opportunities to contribute to the Orcas Island Food Bank:
Register Round-up. Any day you shop at the co-op during May, you will have the opportunity to “round up” your purchases at the register when you check out. Say your purchased $35.50 in items and told them to “round it up” to $40. The difference of $4.50 till go to the Food Bank.
3% Thursday. If you shop on the third Thursday of May (May 16), you will be helping to generate the 3% of gross profits received that day that will be contributed to the Food Bank.
Coins for Community. If you bring your own shopping bag (or 2 or 3), you will receive a “Coins for Community” chip (one for each bag) that you may drop into the Food Bank donation box at the register.
Voila! Everyone’s a Hero! And, members and non-members alike may always shop there any time and get amazing organic food, products and groceries as well as support local community programs, farms and vendors.
