Board of Directors
Meet Our Board
The Just Food Board of directors has four core responsibilities:
- Ensure sound management of the Co-op by hiring, supervising, and evaluating the Co-op’s General Manager
- Enact governing policies, carry out the directives of Co-op’s Articles and Bylaws and update all of the above as necessary
- Act as trustees of member-owners by providing oversight of the Co-op’s finances
- Engage in long-range strategic planning for the Co-op’s future
In addition, the Board is tasked with perpetuating itself through elections and recruitment; upholding a rigorous code of ethics and conduct, and assessing its own performance and policies.
