In March, shoppers at the Monadnock Food Co-op collectively donated $6,026.40 to the Daily Good.
The Monadnock Food Co-op collected these donations during a month-long “Round It Up” donation drive.
Since its founding in the fall of 2019, the Daily Good has purchased and delivered more than 5,000 food items to students in need at Keene State College, Antioch University of New England, and other local centers. Food insecurity on college campuses is a growing reality nationwide, and the Daily Good is doing its part to help overcome that challenge in Keene: dailygoodnh.org.
“We are overwhelmed and so grateful for the generosity of Co-op shoppers,” said Sandra Neil Wallace, who founded the Daily Good with her husband, Rich Wallace.
The Co-op’s Round It Up donation program empowers shoppers to make a positive change in their community by rounding up their change for local agencies like The Community Kitchen. During the Co-op’s last fiscal year, the Round It Up program raised more than $47,895 and supported seven nonprofits.
