Mississippi Market is a food co-op that is open to everyone. We empower our diverse communities to:be healthy,make choices that sustain our planet, andcreate a more just local economy.
Public, Societal Benefit
We are seeking individuals who bring experience working to promote diversity and inclusion, community connections, and social and environmentally sustainable business practices. A passion for great food and a desire to promote a strong local economy are a plus.
A candidate must either be a member of the co-op, or join the co-op to be slated. We do ask that board members be able to make the time commitment to serve. Our board meets once per month for 2.5 hours, and we ask members to serve on a committee. We provide a small monthly stipend and a 10% discount on purchases at the co-op. You can find a candidate application packet on our website, or pick one up in our stores.
Governance. Our board determines the long range vision for the co-op, provides financial oversight, and sets policies that guide management in achieving the co-op's strategic priorities.Sara Talbot
