Community Outreach

Bring-a-Bag Campaign

The Co-op’s Bring-a-Bag Campaign, launched on Earth Day 2011, is one of the ways the Co-op gives back to the community. Every bag the Co-op saves because shoppers bring in their own reusable bag earns money for the community. At the end of each 6-month campaign cycle the savings are donated to a local organization or project selected by the Co-op Ownership. Owners vote for two recipients each year at the Annual Meeting. If you know of a deserving organization or project that fits the criteria*, invite them to fill out an application. (*See application for selection criteria.)

Donations & Event Sponsorships

The Co-op supports local, non-profit and cooperative organizations that are working to increase the health of the community and/or the environment. This includes organizations that address food and nutrition issues, community building, sustainability, environmental preservation, cooperative values, local food production, or alternative/holistic health care.

Donations are typically provided in the form of Co-op gift certificates (in amounts not to exceed $25), which can be used to purchase goods for your event or as door prizes or fundraising auction items. Occasionally the Co-op is able to fill requests for donated products or other items.

Funds are limited, the Co-op is not able to grant every request. Please look over the donations philosophy and guidelines included with the application form below.

Business & Community Partners

National Co+op Grocers (NCG)

The Keweenaw Co-op is a member of the National Co+op Grocers, a co-op that provides business services for over 140 retail food co-ops like ours. It connects us to other food co-ops and lets us focus more of our time on providing greater value to our owners, shoppers and local community.

Michigan Tech Employees Federal Credit Union (MTEFCU)

Did you know that Credit Unions are a type of co-op too? Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together. That’s why the Keweenaw Co-op is happy to host a Michigan Tech Employee Credit Union ATM for the convenience of our shoppers.

Upper Peninsula Food Exchange (UPFE)

The Keweenaw Co-op is proud to part of the collaborative effort led by the Marquette Food Co-op and MSU Extension in conjunction with the Western U.P. Health Department to support the local food activities taking place within the Upper Peninsula’s distinct regions (eastern, central, western). UPFE assists with the development and ongoing maintenance of the three successful regional food hubs and serves as a resource portal for farmers, businesses, and individuals looking to connect with and actively participate in their local food system.
