16, 834 Owners - We Missed You!

Sounding Board
By Your Board December 4, 2012

As a cooperative business, our owners choose the team of individuals (Board of Directors) who will determine the business goals (Ends) and oversee general management’s strategy (Means) for accomplishing those goals.  Ideally, each Director will represent at least one aspect of the diversity of our ownership population. 

In other words:  You have an opportunity to select YOUR ambassador in the leadership of your Outpost.

A Visit to Walnut Way

Sounding Board
By Your Board October 30, 2012

On Saturday, October 6, I had the pleasure of attending Harvest Day at Walnut Way, on 17th and North Avenue.  The entire 2200 block of N. 17th Street was blocked off for the celebration, with a large sound truck on the north end, providing a stage and sound system for talk and music.

Candidate Statement - Douglas Spencer

Sounding Board
By Your Board October 19, 2012

Every time I walk into Outpost I feel a sense of family. As an environmentally conscious adult this is important to me and I know a lot of hard work and integrity is needed to accomplish that. I feel that as consumers we need to honor and support establishments that align with our personal convictions; especially those that make every effort to care about the communities they are a part of. Outpost has accomplished this and for that they need to be recognized. It is our duty to give back to the community wherever possible. I wish to give back to Outpost what it has given me. As a board member, I will work to maintain and improve Outpost Natural Foods to the best of my ability.

Candidate Statement - David Lee

Serving on the Outpost board would allow me to expand the scope of my work as a food advocate. I believe in the power of food to transform and build communities. Over the course of human history, great civilizations and cultures developed anywhere people could grow, cultivate and share food. This is no coincidence. However, as we have become more disconnected from our food, our communities have also become increasingly fragmented. Co-ops give consumers and the communities they serve an active, ownership role in repairing these disconnections and fragmentations, while also bending the cost curve toward a more just food system.

The word “pride” is what I most closely associate with my service on the Outpost Board of Directors. Pride in the mission of providing local and/or organic food to foster a healthier community. Pride in my ownership in a solid and successful organization. Pride in the cooperative which shares power evenly among all of us who are owners. Pride in the staff whose spirit of compromise kept the good ship Outpost afloat during the recent financial crisis. And finally, pride in the ethical and transparent manner in which Outpost conducts its business at all levels. In a nutshell, that’s my “Why.”

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert January 13, 2012

Repeat after me – I am not a quitter - I am not a quitter. Well I guess “life” happened since my last blog post, as I have blissfully ignored the fact I haven’t yet completed my list of lessons.

Week 35 - Do Try This At Home

A Year of Inconvenience
By Pam Mehnert January 1, 2011

I can still feel the weight of the door as it opened up to reveal the sweet fragrance of sugar and spices, as well as I can still hear my grandma calling out, "I heard noise that - what are you kids up to?"
