Community Outreach & Donations

Concern for our community is written into the Cooperative Principles that guide us, and we strive to be an active part of the community we serve. Whether it’s providing a gift basket for a school fundraiser or peddling our “smoothie bike” to your event and making free smoothies for everyone, we do what we can to say “Thank You” to a community that has supported us for over 40 years.

Bring Your Own Bag – Use it for Good

Our BYOB program encourages our shoppers to bring their own bags by providing them with a token worth 5¢ that they are able to donate to the non-profit of their choice. Each quarter we select three local non-profits, which represent the categories of people, planet, and animals, to be recipients of this program. At the end of the quarter we make a donation to the groups based on the amount of tokens provided by our customers.

If you’d like your group to be considered as a BYOB recipient, apply here.
