Campaign Story

The Monadnock Food Co-op invites you to our August Round It Up Donation Drive to benefit Food Connects. You can round up your change at the Co-op’s registers or online!  (The total above reflects the total collected online only.)

Support the Food Connects Farm to School Program in the Monadnock Region.

Funds raised will support the Food Connects Farm to School initiative in the Monadnock Region. This program offers professional development and local food purchasing support to school professionals, grant support for schools, and print materials, including Harvest of the Month calendars, posters, cookbooks, and signage to help bolster and promote Farm to School initiatives. Food Connects works in partnership with the Monadnock Farm to School Network to build a sustainable local food system in the Monadnock Region and help nurture a new generation of mindful food consumers.

“The Co-op’s Round It Up program has proven to be a powerful tool in rallying community support and making a tangible difference in the lives of children in our region,” said Richard Berkfield, Executive Director and Founder of Food Connects. “The support from the Monadnock Food Coop not only helps us foster a healthier and more sustainable food system but also enables us to educate and inspire the next generation about the importance of local agriculture and healthy eating.”
