At the Co-op we think of ourselves as a community hub with a focus on quality food.
In order to be a community hub, we must be responsive, be engaged, and hold a welcoming space for all members of our community.
As the topic of racial equity fills so much of the news, it is important to not only state our commitment but to also reflect on and question the culture and community practices we live with that may further racial and social inequity. Racial equity work is a journey that includes a shift in policies, procedures, and our culture. There is no quick solution or “fix.” We invite our community to learn and challenge itself with us as we build a co-op that feels welcoming to all.
