June 18, 2020

Local organizations, groups, and/or causes are invited to apply for the 2020-2021 cycle of Mariposa Food Co-op‘s Round-up For Change program.

Through the program, which is now in its third year, Mariposa’s member-owners and shoppers “round-up” their purchases to the nearest dollar, and the extra change is then donated to program recipients. The first recipient will be selected for September 2020 and the cycle will run until August 2021.

Organizations whose missions or objectives carry out one of the following will be considered: 

• Promotes nutritious foods and healthy diets
• Promotes food justice and/or social justice
• Encourages environmental responsibility
• Serves as a cooperative organization
• Serves Mariposa’s immediate neighborhood and community
• Supports local education initiatives
• Promotes and contributes to urban agriculture and/or the local food economy
• Promotes grassroots, community organizing and development
• Provides financial relief for Philadelphia small businesses, organizations, or individuals experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (While non-profit status is not required for all applicants, COVID-19 financial relief applicants must be backed by a non-profit or other incorporated charitable organization).

This month’s recipient of the Round-up For Change program is West Philadelphia-based Girls’ Leadership Camp Sojourner.
