At the co-op, we’ve always understood the power of a strong community. Our co-op was built by neighbors coming together to create food solutions in their neighborhoods. Since the pandemic began, we’ve seen that same spirit in people and organizations joining together to keep families fed. We saw it again when our community came together to protest the unjust killing of George Floyd and everything it stood for. And again, that same spirit appeared in the following weeks as neighbors helped pick up the pieces and start to rebuild. We know that the combined effort of the collective “WE” can have a real impact. We see it every day in our community of owners, staff and local food producers. This issue of Cultivate is dedicated to the power of we—doing the important work that none of us could do alone. Thank you for being a part of our community.
