What is Be The Change Program?
Sevananda Natural Foods Market’s Be The Change Program is our contribution to a healthier Atlanta. Each time you go through the register at Sevananda, you have the opportunity to contribute to a local non-profit by either donating a specific dollar amount or rounding your purchase up to the nearest dollar. By donating your spare change, you are contributing to a better Atlanta.

How does it work?
A committee composed of members of our co-op select twelve community nonprofit organizations from those who apply each year. These twelve organizations are assigned one month each in the upcoming calendar year. During the assigned month, shoppers at Sevananda contribute to the organization at the register. BTC Partners also receive 1% of Sevananda sales on the fourth Saturday of their partnership month.
