Day 123: Medford Food Coop

7 Aug

After having returned from my camping trip today my first concern was to get a pie into the oven. It was about 3 PM before that happened but I knew that this pie would find a home today.

Once the pie was done, I was ready and willing to deliver it to a worthy recipient. As I knew that the staff at the Medford Food Co-op had been working long hours this weekend preparing for their grand opening, I headed there this afternoon certain that I would find someone who deserved a pie.

When I arrived at the co-op I found a crew busy at work. And then I found my husband who is the co-op’s General Manager. When he saw me with a pie, he asked if I had a recipient in mind. I told him that I thought that each and every co-op employee was worthy of a pie. And that is when he mentioned that a co-op board member had volunteered to help this weekend and had worked more than ten hours on a tedious but critical project.

The Medford Food Co-op is truly a beautiful space. The employees have been working very hard to make it so and they deserve to be recognized for their efforts – and I think the 1400+ co-op members will be thrilled when they see it.

Tonight I gave a Kickass Apple Pie to that dedicated board member. I want to thank him for his dedication and support of this amazing project.
