Foodworks is for Everyone
We’re offering work credit to Shareholders in exchange for making masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here are two patterns two of our employees have been using – if you have a different pattern you’d like to use, go right ahead!
The Deli is open for Smoothies, juice, coffee, sandwiches, cold-case items (desserts and deli salads) and Pre-Packed Favorites for you to take home to eat/ heat & eat, and brick oven pizza is back!

Trout and other small whole fish cook quickly on the grill. The key is to keep the delicate fish from sticking on the grate and tearing. If you like to cook fish, it can be worth investing in a fish grilling basket. This tool, made of wire, opens and closes to clamp the fish in place so you can cook it without placing it directly on the grate. If you don't have one, you can grill the fish wrapped in foil, which has the benefit of keeping it moist and adds the option of infusing the fish with added flavors such as lemon and herbs.
Brattleboro Food Co-op Board of Directors
Dear Shareholders, Shoppers, and Community Members,
I need to apologize. Again. For my white privilege which has allowed me to not focus on racial inequality for the last 11 weeks, as, truth be told, I had no capacity other than thinking about staff and customers’ physical safety, keeping people employed, and providing food to the community. All fine ways to occupy my brain, but this last week reminded me that I have the luxury of not having to think about racial disparity, never mind safety, every minute of every day. That has to stop for me. I cannot accept that we are still having the kinds of actions that were once more perpetuated in Minneapolis, and across the nation, that are unacceptable and enraging.
Each month, Co-op employees nominate colleagues they want to honor, and a committee comes together to vote on a winner. Our staff have all been heroic over these last months, but we’d like to lift up these three gems in particular for standing out in a stellar crowd!
I am a cashier at our Co-op, and I am also a Board member. Being new to the Board, it can be challenging to remember which hat I am wearing at any given time! A little background: our bylaws require one and allow up to two staff directors on the Board. It’s commonly thought that I’m on the Board to represent only the Co-op employees, but that’s not the case. Staff directors, like patron directors, represent all shareholders. However, in my experience, my insights as an employee have been welcomed at our meetings.
