Use your Bean!

During the month of September, the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library will be among three designated organizations that will benefit from the Brattleboro Food Co-op’s Bag-A-Bean program.

How It Works
Whenever customers bring in their own grocery bag, bulk-food container, or travel mug, the Co-op thanks them with a 5¢ credit or a bean that they can drop it into one of three containers benefiting local non-profits.
