October is Non-GMO Month! And the Co-op has made a commitment to the Non-GMO Project this year: on Friday, October 19th, we are going to donate 5% of our sales to the Project. And, in order to give back to our own members, we will give a yellow Non-GMO Month bag to each member who spends more than $100 in one shopping trip that day.
The Co-op, along with thousands of stores across North America, is helping the Butterfly land in shopping carts every day. We have a lot to celebrate this October: the Non-GMO Project Verified product count has soared past 43,000; the ever-increasing number of participating retailers means more non-GMO choices for more people; and last year we saw the first ever decrease in genetically modified crop acreage since GMO agriculture was introduced two decades ago.
Help us celebrate Non-GMO Month on Friday and all month long!
not everyone can afford to shop at the coop

Food Co-ops should be about ensuring everyone has access to healthy food not just those with enough money to buy a membership. Why not use that money to make Non-GMO foods more affordable for everyone in the community?
