BEET BUCKS PROGRAM
As part of our commitment to the community, Sugar Beet Food Co-op partners with 3 local nonprofit organization for a two month period for our Beet Bucks Program. We do this to give monetary support and awareness of the group’s work in the community, and to encourage our shoppers to bring their own bags. Sugar Beet Food Co-op donates 5¢ cents per transaction to a BEET BUCKS Program Partner when you use a reusable bag, coffee mug or bulk container.
HOW IT WORKS
Every time you shop the Co-op bring a reusable bag, mug or bulk container you’ll receive a BEET BUCK that you can give to a local charity. Choose between three charities and help them raise funds with your vote! For each Beet Buck, the Co-op donates 5¢ to the organization. WIN WIN!
Golden Beet Bucks
An option to give a little extra! If you ❤️ our Beet Bucks partners and would love to be able to support them more directly, we have a new program for you! Buy a Golden Beet Buck at the register for $1, drop it in the Beet Bucks jar of your choosing, and we'll pass the $1 on to the organization- it's a Beet Bucks boost! (And don't forget to use your bags and containers to get your regular Beet Bucks with your visit.)
