Volunteer Program

Breadroot has a new volunteer program!

RootWorks is Breadroot’s first ever volunteer program! If you want to make a difference in our community and get an awesome discount at the same time, this is a great opportunity. The details of RootWorks are simple: member-owners will receive 15% off their in-store purchase for every 6 hours spent volunteering at one of our Nonprofit Neighbor organizations. Right now, we have five Nonprofit Neighbors, and we hope to continue to add more to the list, as more community relationships are built. We also plan to add How-To classes (kombucha, sourdough, fermentation, gardening, farming) to the list of volunteer opportunities. We have a lot of ideas!

Sign up for the RootWorks volunteer program online by submitting an application or filling one out at the Co-op.

If you’re signing up online, please email a completed application to sharissa@breadroot.com

You must submit a RootWorks application to redeem the 15% off credits!

If you’d like your Nonprofit organization considered for this program, please email us!

Because this is a new program, any feedback would be much appreciated. If there’s anything you would like addressed, please let us know. We want to make this a lasting program that can grow to serve our community and our Co-op!
