By Ashley Hamlin, Moscow Food Co-op Board of Directors
Your Co-op Board is gearing up for some exciting spring events which we would like to preview for you.
Movie and Forum Event
The Co-op Board’s Owner Engagement Committee and the Moscow Human Rights Commission are teaming up to present a special movie and forum event on the working conditions of farmworkers. We believe this is a vital topic, as part of the Co-op's mission is to care about our community and be informed about where our food comes from. A panel of speakers will field questions and present information about the working conditions of farmworkers after the movie.
Not only does the Co-op sell produce grown by local farmers, but we also provide opportunities for thoughtful discussion about personal values and the impact of food on our economy, as well as how the Co-op can be an agent of change in creating food systems that are fair and sustainable for farmworkers. Come join us for this important event, which will be held in early April.
The Annual Meeting
Considering the amazing grand opening and success of our new Co-op in the Campus Christian Center on the University of Idaho campus, as well as the exciting center-store remodel which will bring greater beauty and functionality to the main store, celebration is in order! Come join the Board and General Manager as we throw a fete for all our owners to reflect back on the year's accomplishments and come together in solidarity for our Co-op!
We’ll have music and food and, of course, Board members eager to converse with you and discuss whatever questions or concerns you have about how our Co-op is doing. We look forward to the Annual Meeting each year as a way to celebrate you, our owners, who make our Co-op one of Moscow's most cherished institutions.
We’re taking a lighter tone this year to create a more celebratory atmosphere, while still reflecting on our cooperative principles and the significant advances the Co-op has made this year.
So, we warmly welcome you to join us for this celebratory event which will take place at the Gladish Community Center at 115 N.W. State Street in Pullman, on April 20 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Claim your democratic member control by joining us at our annual celebration of your Moscow Food Co-op. Spread the word!
