Where do you live?
Wilmot, NH

What are you passionate about?
Lifelong friends and shared mutual interests, including music, snowboarding, and local food.

What is it about the Co-op that excites you?
So much! The way owners really use the co-op to get what they need & so many shoppers choose to be owners of this thriving community resource. How the Co-op goes out of its way to showcase local producers, as well as support those experiencing food insecurity & a broad range of community organizations. The way the Co-op centers environmental sustainability and acts both boldly and systematically toward that goal. That the Co-op is an integral part of a regional, national & international ecosystem that builds a better world through cooperative enterprise. I could go on...

Where will I find you - which store, which aisle?
There's something special about the cheese aisle at the Lebanon store. It's a nice, little oasis at the heart of the store. And you can always find both tried & true and new-discovery Vermont artisanal cheeses! My favorite recently won an international award, but that's not why I like it and enjoy sharing it with friends.

I love how the Co-op is actively supporting the community and brings us all together through shared values and collaborative efforts!

Where will I find you - which store, which aisle?

Term ends 2027

Where do you live?
Lyme, NH

What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about finding solutions to create attainable housing in underserved communities.

What is it about the Co-op that excites you?
The moment I stepped inside the doors of the Co-op, I sensed its unique aura. The quaint Co-op in Lyme was my first encounter, and it immediately captured my interest. Little did I anticipate that I would eventually become a member of the Board. Yet here I am, nearly three years into my term, thoroughly enjoying my role within this exceptional organization. What resonates with me most about the Co-op is the palpable vitality that envelops me as I wander through the aisles of each store. I feel sense of excitement every time I walk into the Co-op stores. Observing the member owners taking immense pleasure and pride in their food and product choices fills me with a deep appreciation. The assurance that I can acquire wholesome items for both myself and my daughter is a source of confidence.

Where will I find you - which store, which aisle?
On any given day at the Hanover store perusing the aisles, but where you will find me mostly hanging out is the organic vegetable section. I love all of the varieties of vegetables and contemplating what creative dishes I will conjure up for the upcoming week.

Where will I find you - which store, which aisle?
Just one? Hmmm....I am going to go with the Hanover store and the cheese counter because my favorite maple apple baked donut holes are right near the cheese counter so I can get a two-for-one here! That cheese counter is where I first sampled a fabulous truffle cheese which is now a favorite!

Essex, VT

Family, friends and volunteering in my community and mentoring. Dancing, local food and the game of Lacrosse.

Cooperative economics excites me, and I'm committed to learning about and assisting with how these business models thrive. The Co-op food stores increase access to affordable food, amplify the value of supporting the local food and farm economy and improve well-being for a volunteer like me who is 'fed' by the knowledge and sense of purpose that comes from being an eater/customer to our stores.

The Co-op stores participate in the incredible eco-system of community-owned food enterprises around the globe, encouraging positive interaction among eaters and a reminder of our shared responsibility to be good stewards of our food system.

Where will I find you – which store, which aisle?
Likely meandering carefully around each store for different reasons. Produce, cheese and wine are areas where you might find me visiting longer.
