The Berkshire Food Co-Op on Bridge Street in Great Barrington stresses community support each and every day as they believe during these trying times we can all make a big difference to band together and look out for the well being of our neighbors throughout south county and the entire tri-state region.

Starting on September 24th, the grocery store is giving back by donating 5 % of their Thursday proceeds to a random non-profit organization. This week's beneficiary: Community Learning In The Berkshires (aka CLuB) seeks to meet the urgent needs of working families as they are struggling to fill the childcare gap brought along by the COVID-19 pandemic,

Five human service organizations created CLuB as their mission is to establish low and no-cost remote learning sites for area students which also provides full-day supervision and enrichment activities.
