As a community-owned business, we wouldn't exist without this community. Giving back is part of our mission and being a good neighbor.
We're lucky to live in a place made stronger by local nonprofits. We are proud to support twelve of them through our "Apple a Day" fundraising program.
Every month, we donate 10 cents of every apple sold at both Co-op locations to these groups:
Senior Grocery Program
Gallatin Valley Food Bank
Gallatin Valley Farm to School
Fork and Spoon Homestyle Kitchen
The Warming Center
Special Olympics – Big Sky Area
Cancer Support Community
Open and Local
* Valid on bulk apples. Not valid on bagged apples. Donation numbers are calculated by pounds of apples sold and based on the average weight of one apple.
Please note: The Co-op reserves the right to make changes or updates to its Apple a Day giving program at any time.
How We Choose Recipients
Our Giving Committee meets annually to chose recipients whose work aligns with our mission to “respect the food, the people and the place.” We have an ongoing partnership with many of our recipients.
Sorry; we do not accept applications for this program or schedule meetings to discuss eligibility.
Interested in adding your group's name to the discussion? Send a brief e-mail by January 1, 2019. Please do not send paper letters, brochures or other literature.
We will contact recipients by June 1, 2019. If you have not heard from us, you may follow up via e-mail.
