In order to share our love of community, we want to begin discussing some of the most important reasons why MVM Co+op has made it this far: YOU. We have some incredible individuals who have been a part of our Co+op for many years and we believe that it is time for us to show our love for ya’ll! We have some celebrity Member-Owners, if you didn't already know! Some of them include local and state political figures.
Bill McCamley is one of our Dona Ana County State Representatives. Even though he spends most of his time in Santa Fe, while he is back home in Las Cruces he is a familiar face here at the Co-op. Bill often enjoys his lunch here at the MVM Cafe and new Salad Bar. I recently asked Bill a few questions about his love for the Co-op!
I had the pleasure to sit down with Sarah Smith and her two lovely children last week, to discuss the incredible journey through her dietary evolution. Sarah and her husband began a shift in their dietary thinking a number of years ago. It began when they realized that their "conventional lifestyle" wasn't serving their overall well being.
Jon moved to Las Cruces a decade ago, and has been a Co-op Member-Owner ever since. He lives by the adage that “you are what you eat”, and he can trust the quality of what he finds here at MVM. Not only does Jon rely on organic, sustainable foods, he also believes in the importance of community. “There is great importance of people getting together, because we can increase our power”, states Jon.
Anna remembers a time in her life when she didn’t know what gluten was or about organic foods. Her oldest daughter was beginning to have serious physical and mental health issues. Anna remembers that most of her daughter Sarah's doctors couldn’t offer an explanation or even help with the illnesses other than pharmaceutical medication. Anna and her husband Chris were pretty desperate.
