Former Montavilla Food Co-op steering committee and outreach committee member Renee Bogin Curtis is a guest on OPB’s Think Out Loud.
I joined the Montavilla Food Co-op because I want a neighborhood grocery store: that REALLY supports local farmers and businesses; that truly does everything within its power to be green and sustainable; that is member-owned and governed so that customer-owners have the power to make decisions instead of having to accept whatever corporate management decides; and that really gives back to the community. I want to help shatter the myth that co-ops are only for a wealthy sub-section of the population (and that neighborhood improvement is synonomys with gentrification).

“Co-ops are good for our community, good for our quality of life, and provide us a key way to take charge of our food supply. I am happy my family joined and look forward to its opening!”
