Dauphin Co-op Bags for Breakfast Program

Purpose of the Program

The Bags for Breakfast Program is designed to divert plastic bags from our landfills while supporting local schools and daycares in the communities that we serve. Dauphin Co-op will donate $.03 per reusable bag that is used instead of plastic for every shopper in our locations. We welcome the opportunity to be involved and help build a stronger community through support of healthy, nourished children as they grow and learn. These individuals will be our future employees, community leaders, and Co-op Members.
