Declaration of Candidacy for the Board of Directors
The elections will be finalized at the close of our spring general membership meeting (GMM) on Thursday, May 28, 2020. Member-owners will be able to vote online leading up to the GMM or in person. We are electing up to seven directors (minimum of three) to serve for a two-year term beginning July 1, 2020.

The Co-op invites all candidates who are member-owners in good standing, committed to our mission of using food as a force for good. The deadline to declare your candidacy (by filling out this form) is March 27, 2020.
