In July, the Co+op Board hired Sierra Hirtzel as our new General Manager. Sierra has valiantly served the Co+op as Interim General Manager since September of last year. Through her stalwart leadership, the Co+op pioneered new methods for purchasing budgets, marketing, and departmental tracking—which is exciting news in the grocery world!
As the summer draws to a close and fall approaches, school is back in session and the weather is cooling down, I frequently find myself thinking about family gatherings with lots and lots of good food. I absolutely love when temperatures are cool enough to really enjoy spending an afternoon making soups or casseroles, or roasting root vegetables! My favorite recipe (if you can call it that) for roasted root vegetables is super easy!
We live in a world where you can walk into a grocery store and buy most fruits and vegetables any time of year, regardless of season. Want a peach in December? It’ll be expensive and it won’t taste great, but you can find one. Because of this, we’ve gotten very used to buying out of season, mediocre-tasting fruits and vegetables.
What are you doing Saturday, August 6? If you didn't say "going to the Co+op Block Party," then you probably just don't know how great it's going to be! But don't worry, I'm here to give you the run-down.
Thank you all for casting your vote in the 2016 Board of Directors election!
We have tallied the results and we are excited to announce that Dael Goodman, Scott Kamen, Lisa Pena, Angelica Rubio, and Xochitl Torres-Small have been elected to the open spots on the MVM Co+op Board of Directors. Valarie Holliday has been ratified as the staff member on the Board. The by-law change was approved.
