Shareholder Assistance Needed PDF Print E-mail

December 2013

As we swing into high gear in our Education Outreach programs in the schools, in the cooking classroom, and, as part of our Food for All initiative, at the food shelves and shelters, we will need folks to sign up to help us staff our efforts. Please stop by the Shareholder Services desk and give us your name, email address and phone number, so that we can ask you to participate once we have our schedule worked out. Activities will include, for instance, inventorying food shelf items, cooking up some recipes, and demonstrating them on site. We also hope to assist with the overnight shelter dinner program, so let us know if you are willing and able to help us out. Again, stop by and sign up!
Far too many of our friends and neighbors are challenged with food insecurity, and recent cuts to assistance programs have only exacerbated this problem. We are working to explain nutritious options, make those options accessible, and assist by including them in tasty meal options.

 alexA Successful Year of Support for Our Community

 

by Alex Gyori
November 2013

One of the Ends Policies of BFC is the following: “Reasonably priced food and products with an emphasis on healthy, locally grown, organic, and fairly traded goods”.

As we tallied up the statistics for the yearly Ends Policies monitoring report to the Board of Directors this past summer, one set of data revealed that our new store has by far exceeded our expectations: BFC’s support for local producers and businesses. The volume of business generated within our defined local area increased dramatically during the first year of operating.  There were 92 businesses of various types added to the Co-op’s network of vendors.  That’s an 18% increase over the previous year, a substantial leap forward. These vendors, including producers and suppliers of business goods and services, are all located within a 100-mile radius of the Co-op, as well as all of Vermont. The graphs and tables that you see below present a clear picture of the scope of the expanding impact of a business owned by over 6,000 BFC shareholders. We can be justifiably proud of the significant contribution that our Co-op makes to the economic vitality of our local community.

In September, we will join businesses all over Vermont in supporting the
