Children aged 12 & under are invited to become  co+op explorers
Children aged 12 and under are invited to become a "co+op explorer" at the Belfast Co-op, making them eligible to receive one free piece of fruit per child per day.
To become a card-carrying co+op explorer, children simply need to bring a parent or supervising adult with them to a cashier and ask to become a Co+op Explorer. Each child will be issued an official co+op explorers card.

Once children are signed up, here's how it works:

1) Children with parents/guardians stop by the produce department and ask a staff person for the co+op explorer fruit basket. When they choose their free piece of fruit, they will also be given a co+op explorers sticker to wear on their shirt or jacket, so Co-op staff will know they are fruit eating co+op explorers. Each child's eligible to take one piece of fruit and enjoy eating it while you shop. There is a compost bucket in the Co-op Cafe for remains once they've finished.

2) When checking out, please remind the cashier that your child (or children) ate a free piece of fruit as part of co+op explorers so that the Co-op can track participation in the program.

The community-owned Belfast Co-op, open 7:30am-8pm daily, is located at 123 High Street in downtown Belfast. All are welcome. For further information, (207) 338-2532,
