Join your co-op community at this year’s virtual member-owner meeting as we build upon past annual meeting conversations featuring Voices for Racial Justice and Rose McGee of Sweet Potato Comfort Pie, along with member-owner feedback sessions around food and racial justice work.

This year, we continue the conversation with Dr. Joi Lewis, the renowned keynote speaker and president of the Healing Justice Foundation, our October Positive Change recipient. Together, we will explore practices of Radical Self-Care that help create space for wellness, especially related to the pandemic and racial injustice.

While we can’t share a meal in person at this year’s annual meeting, the co-op’s goal remains to bring our community together around good food. In that spirit, we are creating special snack kits available for pickup before the meeting. These curated snack kits, highlighting our local vendors, are meant to be eaten during the annual meeting to unite us around food while we’re apart.

To reserve your ticket for the virtual member-owner meeting, you can either select a reimbursable $5 registration in which you’ll receive a snack kit along with a $5 co-op voucher the week of the event, or you can select a free registration in which you’ll receive an email with the Zoom details to join the meeting along with a $5 off $25 coupon. Please note that snack kit registration will close on Oct. 16.
