Welcome to the Plainfield Co-op

 

Join Us In Welcoming Our New General Manager

The Board is pleased to announce Peter Youngbaer as the Co-op's new General Manager.  Many may know Peter already.  He is a long-time community member, a Justice of the Peace, and a member-owner/frequent shopper at the Co-op!  For many years, Peter was the Executive Director of Peoples’ Health and Wellness Clinic in Barre (free clinic).  At one time, Peter also led the Vermont Coalition for Disability Rights, once served as a State Representative, and is a graduate of Goddard College. 
We are excited to have Peter step in and lead the hardworking, dedicated team of staff and working members that keeps our small and mighty Co-op open.  Our Co-op’s next chapter is sure to involve some change as we clarify our vision of what it means to cultivate partnerships, grow our revenue and remain a vibrant hub of food and community amidst a changing economy, climate and culture. 
We invite you to stop into the store, check out what’s new, and say “hello” to Peter!   You can also find Peter…
o   At the Plainfield Community Supper, Tuesday, March 24th, 6pm at Grace United Methodist Church (the Co-op is hosting!)
o   At the Plainfield Winter Farmer’s Market, Sunday, March 8th, 11am – 3pm at the Plainfield Opera House (stop by the Co-op’s tasting table!)

Many thanks to our hiring committee and interview teams who leaned in over the past several weeks: Les Snow, Kim Sudol, Cat Klarich, Chloe Budnick, Jezebel Crow, and Kevin Levesque.  And special thanks to our interim volunteer General Manager, Jean Hamilton!  Jean’s strive for both excellence and kindness, even in the midst of challenge and uncertainty, has been a powerful compass these past few years. Thank you, Jean.

 

 

Plainfield Co-op is a community-owned and operated food cooperative offering a full line of groceries. We love our members, but everyone is welcome to shop with us! Whether you're looking for fresh produce, dairy, affordable bulk products, or household items, you'll find what you need on our shelves. We also have an extensive selection of medicinal and kitchen herbs; a carefully selected collection of affordable beers, wines and hard ciders; health supplements; and personal care products. Everything on our shelves is always as local as possible. Our mission to provide the community with the most healthful food choices means that our focus is on organic, but we also offer selected conventional products that are more affordable.

While we welcome all shoppers, our members are closest to our hearts! So we do everything we can to make sure membership is affordable for everyone. Please check out our membership page to find out how you can become more involved in working with us to provide food for people instead of profit!
