Community Donations

Our Philosophy

At Medford Food Co-op, we strive to promote the health and sustainability of our community through several donation programs, including:

  • small financial or in-kind contributions to local organizations
  • hands-on nutrition education demonstrations for elementary school classes
  • donations of wholesome, nutritious produce, eggs, dairy, and assorted grocery items to the Medford Gospel Mission

Donation preferences are given to registered (501c3) non-profit organizations in the communities most commonly served by Medford Food Co-op. Priority is also given to organizations promoting local, organic food, food related issues, or community health concerns. Individuals, commercial enterprises, and partisan organizations are not eligible for donations. Recipient organizations are eligible a maximum of twice per year.
