Through the Moscow Food Co-op’s Dime in Time program, customers at the store donated $1,994.30 to PFLAG Moscow, the Latah County Recovery Center and the Co-op Community Fund.

Dime in Time offers the Co-op’s customers a wooden dime for every reusable bag or cup they use, and customers donate that dime to the beneficiary of their choice. According to a Co-op news release, 19,943 disposables did not end up in the trash because customers chose to use reusable items.

PFLAG is a nonprofit that serves the LGBTQ community; the recovery center aids those in the community with addiction and/or mental health issues; the community fund invests donated money, and the Co-op redistributes interest made on those donations to the community in the form of grants.
