Organic Valley has been proudly working with National Co-op Grocers (NCG) stores and the National Farm to School Network (NFSN) to offer school kids a chance to grow their own organic food. For every Organic Valley product purchased in an NCG store during August 2019, $1 was donated to the NFSN (up to $15,000). At the end of the month, the three NCG stores with the highest Organic Valley product sales each got to choose a school to receive a NFSN donation to its school garden program.
In fact, Viroqua Food Co+op was a lucky winner and selected Viroqua Montessori School to receive one of the grants! Working together as co-ops do, we were able to make a real change in our communities. Watch for more information later when the school can break ground.
