The Boise Co-op has chosen Artisans for Hope as a recipient in their Change 4 Change program.
CHANGE 4 CHANGE
The Boise Co-op is dedicated to giving back to our community. Our Change 4 Change Program is a way for Co-owners and shoppers to participate in that commitment with us. When customers bring in their own shopping bags, they can either earn 10¢ off their bill or choose to donate those two nickels to two of three pre-selected recipient organizations that share our commitment to a healthy community. Recipients are chosen on a quarterly basis.
The following criteria is used to guide our selections:
• Healthy food access programs
• Sustainable agriculture and organic food producers
• Education in the areas of nutrition, health and wellness
• Cooperative, community-based businesses
• Non-profit entities that reflect Boise Co-op’s cooperative principles
