The Orcas Food Co-op’s Community Hero Program serves as an umbrella for “3% Thursdays,” “Register Round Up” and “Coins for Community.” Selected organizations will be the recipient of funds gathered through the following:

  • 3% Thursday: 3% of the gross receipts on the third Thursday of the month.
  • Register Round Up: Shoppers have the opportunity to round up their purchases throughout the entire month.
  • Coins for Community: Wooden coins donated when customers bring their own bag.

Organizations will be eligible for the program based on their service to the community in the following areas: local community service organizations, organic food, healthy food for children or seniors, environmentally friendly and sustainable agricultural practices, human rights, environmental preservation and groups with similar missions and values.
