Fundraising

The Alberta Coop community actively supports several local organizations that share our values around access to healthy food and address environmental issues that are close to home.

Every month we feature an organization that shoppers can donate to at the register. Contributing couldn’t be any easier than with the option to round-up your total when you check out. Every penny counts!

We invite you to join us this November and December in supporting Sisters of the Road and their annual Together at the Table fundraiser. As a part of Together at the Table, your generous donation will be matched. Sisters of the Road has a goal of raising $585,000 to support their programming and we have until the end of 2017 to make this happen together! Find out more or donate here!

Other Organizations we currently partner with:

Farmers Market Fund/Double Up Bucks

This dynamic program increases the dollars that EBT/SNAP customers have to spend at local famers markets.

Sisters of the Road

Portland’s most visible, proactive, all-inclusive food justice organization. We can’t say enough about the work they do! We fundraise for them towards the end of the year and make a monthly donation so that they can provide snacks at their Free Community Health Care Night, the third Friday of each month.

Kitchen Commons

Kitchen Commons builds community around food, promotes the benefits and joys of cooking together, and works to make healthy meals affordable and practical for all. We support a network of Community Kitchens and their leaders through training and resources, and help organizations with kitchens put them to full use serving community.
