BriarPatch Food Co-op Round-up at the Register program
The Co-op CAUSE program allows you to donate easily at checkout to a community endeavor aligned with the Co-op’s Ends Policies. Together we can raise a substantial amount for these causes by focusing attention on a given project for several weeks.
As you check out, just ask the cashier to round up your total payment to the nearest dollar or more. The amount over and above the purchase total — 100 percent of it — will be donated to the designated project.

- Held multiple Unity Summits bringing together representatives of different segments of the county to discuss ways to create more unity and less prejudice in the community
- Created an annual Love Walk, held this year on Saturday, May 9th in downtown Grass Valley
