Donation Guidelines and Request Form

People's Food Co-op's Community Donations Program: Tips, Guidelines and Request Form

People's Food Co-op is proud to be able to give back to the community that supports us through our Community Donations Program!

Every month we make funds available for non-profits, school and school groups, and other organizations and special projects that are in alignment with our values and Ends.

Donation requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. It is recommended to submit your request as soon as you are aware of a need due to having a limited monthly budget allocated for community donations.  We require a four-week minimum to process your request.


Donations are given primarily through gift cards to be used to purchase items in the store or used towards raffles and auctions.  Auction or raffle gift cards will also include a tote bag and other store merchandise.  On specific request, we will consider donations of food at cost for larger events.

You can expect to hear a response from us within 14 business days.

We encourage any local organization serving the community to approach us for a donation. The Co-op seeks to contribute to our community and expose our business to a wide variety of shoppers. We are interested in donating small gift certificates to organizations that work to enrich the community in which we exist and to which we contribute. The Marketing and Membership Manager currently coordinates donations for the Co-op.

Please review the following information before completing your People's Food Co-op donation request form.

1. All requests must be mailed, dropped off at the store or completed on-line.
2. Requests must be submitted using the donation request form.
