A workplace community where cooperative values are modeled – BFC Ends Statement #3.

Our leaders on the BFC Board of directors a couple of years ago worked hard on expressing a strategic goal for our organization that spoke to what they envisioned for us. In the words of the International Cooperative Alliance, “cooperatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility, and caring for others.”

Board of Directors Report: A Look at the Produce Department with an Eye on the Ends PDF Print E-mail

September 2016

When we Board of Directors’ members write monthly articles for Food For Thought, we try to keep them oriented towards the Co-op’s Ends Policies, rather than strictly “operational” stuff. The Ends Policies are what the Board has defined as the Co-op’s goals; we work on these Ends Policies regularly, trying to keep them current with what you, the member-owners of the Co-op, want from our organization. Below are the current Ends Policies for the Brattleboro Food Co-op.

Producer of the Month: Deep Meadow Farm PDF Print E-mail

By Jon Megas-Russell
September 2016

Have you ever really pondered the work, effort, and time it takes to bring you all that kale you have in smoothies and salads? Or the zucchini you sauté with sweet onions and fresh herbs for dinner? They are such delightful products of such hard work. Agriculture dates back thousands and thousands of years, and it’s always been a difficult job. Tilling fields, planting seeds, weeding, cultivating, and harvesting the precious crops are labor intensive activities, without which we at the Brattleboro Food Co-op wouldn’t be able to stock all the delicious and beautiful produce we provide in the store. For this hard work we are thankful to our farmers, and as we crunch into that delightful cucumber or juicy tomato, we hope we can all remember to be grateful for their labors!

Shareholder and Customer Forum: Volunteer Opportunities in our Community PDF Print E-mail

September 2016

Several months ago the Shareholder Forum sponsored a community dialogue about food justice.

In the discussion, people expressed interest in volunteering with local organizations that provide support for people who are finding it difficult to feed themselves and their families. This interest was echoed in our recent shareholder survey, so in this month’s column we are listing local volunteer opportunities.

Under a program called Commitment to Community, working Co-op members may earn up to two hours per year for volunteering with local agencies or non-profits. To get credit for these hours of community service, please speak with Shareholder Services. The Co-op is currently reviewing the program with an eye to potentially expanding beyond two hours per year. If you are able to do additional volunteer work, speak to someone in Shareholder Services about whether you might earn additional shareholder hours.
