Do you have an interest in serving your cooperative and your community? Do you share a commitment to your co-op’s mission and values? Are you a conceptual thinker who can grasp the big picture? Can you work in a group to oversee a vibrant developing organization and help it articulate and achieve its end goals?
If all of the above sound good to you so far, you may have an interest in running for the BCS Board of Directors. Even though we just witnessed an inauguration ceremony from last November’s national election, we still have another election cycle coming up in the cooperative world of Bloomingfoods.
As we come to the end of the year, here's a question: Do you know where your food comes from? It’s a simple inquiry, and you’d think it would have a simple answer (“The store!” Right?) but we know that the world is more complex than that.
One of our jobs in the grocery business is to work to identify and trace sources of food. The kinds of food and beverages that we buy say a lot about what we value, and about the state of our health.
The conversation about food is never-ending at Bloomingfoods. We care, of course, about other things too, but food is the common denominator, a measure of many other social and political factors.
