The Neighboring Food Co-op Association raises funds for the Howard Bowers Fund with its Neighboring Cooperator Award
The “Neighboring Co-operator Award” acknowledges special contributions made to the Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA) and the advancement of our vision by a staff member, director or member of an NFCA Member Co-op or partner organization. As part of the award, the NFCA makes a contribution to the Bowers fund in honor of the recipient and invites other co-ops, organizations and individuals to do so as well. Recipients of the award, launched in 2015, have included Alex Gyori, former General Manager of Brattleboro Food Co-op (VT), Terry Appleby, General Manager of Co-op Food Stores / Hanover Consumer Co-operative Society (NH & VT), and Kay Litten, NFCA Board Member and longtime Board Member of Co-op Food Stores / Hanover Consumer Co-operative Society (NH & VT), and Roger Noonan, President of the New England Farmers Union, and Patrice Lockert Anthony, President of GreenStar Co-op Markets (NY).
