Each month, Co-op employees nominate colleagues they want to honor, and a committee comes together to vote on a winner.
This month we chose KC in Grocery. To quote the colleague who nominated her, “For being one of the best grocery stockers in the store! And for always going the extra mile, with a good-natured approach.”

Getting to know you and making a slam dunk!

The Brattleboro Food Co-op Board of Directors kicked off the (almost) new year at our annual retreat, this time online. We spent a Saturday morning in December building cohesion, trust, and effectiveness as a group. As the newest Board member Steffen Gillom said, “It was impactful, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the other Board members.” Other participating Board members included President Jerelyn Wilson, Judy Fink, Beth Neher, Joe Giancarlo, Denise Glover, Mark Adams, and myself, Tamara Stenn.

Brattleboro Food Co-op Staff member tests positive for COVID-19

| Covid-19

This week we learned that a staff member in our Front End tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Upon learning of the result, we moved quickly to notify our local health department to discuss our plan and also began deep cleaning, additional sanitizing, and contact tracing within the staff. We are following all recommended guidelines from public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and city, county, and state public health departments.

The staff member in question works only in the Front End at the Brattleboro Food Co-op. They last worked on Thursday December 31 in the Front End.
