Daily Change is a round-up at the register program which allows customers to contribute their ‘cents’ to local and regional non-profits. Other co-ops around the country have similar programs, and it is a really exciting way for small amounts to add up. Each month we feature two non-profits, and all donations collected are split between the two. The local Food Bank is a permanent recipient and the other non-profit changes every month. So far, we’ve supported Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement, Athens Land Trust, and Wholesome Wave.

Georgia Fresh for Less
Daily is in the process of implementing Wholesome Wave’s Georgia Fresh for Less program. This program matches SNAP/EBT dollars — dollar for dollar —at participating locations on purchases of local produce. At this point, farmer’s markets are the only groups participating in the program. We’re very excited to be part of the expansion into grocery stores!
Daily regularly donates food to Food Not Bombs and Pinewoods as it is available.
Daily is currently working to create more educational opportunities in order to better serve the Athens community. This will take the form of in-person classes, online material, pop-up events, and more! Check back in for updates!
