A Word from the General Manager: June 2021

Hello Cooperators!


We have received some questions concerning our COVID-19 policies. Please let this message serve as our official position. 


We are not making any changes to our COVID-19 safety policies at this time. 


We realize this is a controversial topic but our response needs to take the safety of our staff, as front-line workers, into greatest consideration. 


Huan’s Shrimp Wontons in Chili Oil

When it’s raining and cold outside, digging into a steaming bowl of wonton soups is a sure fire way to warm the soul and lift the spirit. Wontons are one of my favorite foods in the world and that love was cultivated at a young age thanks to my grandparents. Growing in Sichuan, China, I spent all my school breaks with my grandparents who opened a dumpling business in their retirement. My grandparents own the OG food truck in the form of a dumpling tuk tuk. Yes, I might have been one of the luckiest kids on the planet.

End #2: The Cooperative Movement is Strengthened

Years ago, Common Ground Food Co-op owners weighed in on the specific missions behind the Co-op. In collaboration with the Board of Directors, the owners established four distinct Ends, pillars behind the decision making of the Co-op. End #2 states that Common Ground operates in a way that ensures “The cooperative movement is strengthened.”

2020 Impacts Report

Every year, we measure all the ways we worked to meet our Ends. Typically, we release the Impact Report at our annual Financial Meeting of Owners in April, but we wanted to share it with our owners early this year! 2020 was an unprecedented and chaotic year, but we are so proud of the impact we made. This report will detail how we specifically worked to meet our four Ends and showcase our response to the challenges and calls-to-action we were presented last year. 

Try a Little Self-Care This Valentine’s Day

by Mac Archibald

Try a Little Self-Care This Valentine’s Day

The notion that love revolves around one single day has always been bothersome to me. The expectations are always too high to meet. People tend to have lavish ideas of romantic gestures, leaving them somewhat deflated when they don’t come to fruition. Instead of being a participant in these grandiose ideas for romance, I propose a Valentine’s Day of self-care.
