We partner with local organizations who purchase gift cards from us at 5% less than the value they are worth at the register. These organizations then sell the cards to their customers and supporters, keeping the 5% difference. It is an excellent fund raising opportunity for schools, churches, and other community groups.
From July 2011-June 2012, Bloomingfoods donated $12,558 to the sixteen organizations who currently use the program.
