Shop 4% Friday on August 27th to Support Food to Go

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! This year Skagit Valley Food Co-op has partnered with Skagit Community Foundation to make 4% Friday twice as nice with Double Donation Days! Skagit Community Foundation will be matching all of our 4% Friday giving for 2021.

Now, when you shop 4% Friday Community Shopping Days, your purchase will have twice the impact: on Friday, August 27th, we’re donating 4% of sales to Food to Go, and the Skagit Community Foundation will match our total to double the donation!

Food to Go provides supplemental weekend food for the students of the Anacortes School District. Most of the students in the program are those who receive free and reduced lunch during the week at school but often go hungry over the weekend. Food to Go just finished their summer program, which supplies bags each week that are home delivered.

How will your shopping trip help Food to Go?

4% Friday funds will most likely be used to buy fresh fruit or veggies to put in the lunch bags. Food to Go prepared approximately 119 bags a week this summer, but the school numbers are projected to go up to 200.
