We are in the home stretch of our strategic planning process. The plan is really coming together and it is exciting to see all the work put in by everyone.
As our General Manager, Kenna, has said, the plan builds upon our successes and still takes us into bold (but not necessarily radical) territory. One sure outcome of this planning process is for The Food Co-op to claim its place as the retailer of choice for local and regional products. While ‘eating local’ may seem somewhat common place nowadays – it is still a courageous idea that reverberates across our community and region. We are truly re-building our local food systems one step at a time.
The Board of Directors will be considering the draft strategic plan at our October 16th meeting. We will offer feedback to our consultant and make changes. If all goes well, we hope to approve the final plan at our November meeting. These meetings are, of course, open to the membership. So please come and join us as we put the finishing touches on our strategic plan.
