We have exciting news for supporters of sustainable agriculture and healthy local food looking to make a big impact! From now until November 2, Amazon will donate 5%, ten times the usual rate, on all eligible smile.amazon.com purchases. There is absolutely no cost to you!

AmazonSmile, the charitable giving program of Amazon, has the exact same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, much-needed funds are raised for your charity of choice – and we hope you’ll choose the Foodshed Alliance! To select Foodshed Alliance as your charity, simple click here and start shopping. When you complete your first eligible purchase on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 5% of your total to the Foodshed Alliance through November 2. Any additional purchases after the promotion period will generate a donation of 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products.

“We encourage people to shop local whenever they can,” said Kendrya Close, executive director of the Foodshed Alliance. “But when you shop Amazon and designate the Foodshed Alliance as your chosen nonprofit, we get a percentage of your shopping total–and it doesn’t cost you a penny. Then Amazon sends a check, and you’d be surprised how these donations add up. Every little bit helps!”

To help support the programs of Foodshed Alliance each time you shop on Amazon, select Foodshed Alliance as your AmazonSmile recipient today. Thank you for helping to strengthen our local food system!
