Over the coming year, we will be doing some exciting work. Our five-year Strategic Plan wraps up in 2017. The plan has been very useful to both the board and the general manager in focusing our efforts, and while we’ve agreed that we don’t need a whole new strategic plan, we do want to revisit and re-engage with it. So over the next year, we will be reviewing and revising, and we welcome member-owner input.
Keep an eye on the Board’s board and The Food Co-op website for more information as it becomes available. You’ll be able to visit with us in the alcove (dates and times to be determined) or you can attend the relevant board meetings. The first discussion on the Strategic Plan is scheduled for the February 7th board meeting, held at 5:30pm at The Food Co-op Annex, 2110 Lawrence Street. The section we’ll be working on will be Market Position (please see the current language below). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your input, or we’ll hope to see and hear from you at the February 7th meeting!

We will be the market of choice for our community to access local, organic, and non-GMO products.
