Photos from the PCC Annual Member Meeting!
Why attend a PCC member meeting? For starters, there's the delicious (and free!) dinner, designed with the varied dietary choices and restrictions of our members in mind:
Spinach salad with Roasted Spiced Chickpeas and Lemon Vinaigrette, Curred Butter Chicken, Thai Green Curry and Coconut Tempeh, Minted Quinoa, and Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Zest, YUM! Dessert was Creamy Rice Pudding with Pistachios and Carmelized Bananas.
You get to gather with scores of other members who love PCC, sustainable agriculture and great food.
Just look at all those nametags at check-in!
Each table has a captain who helps encourage thoughtful discussion.
Meet happy PCC employees from headquarters and our nine stores.
The evening is truly a team effort.
And, you get to hear from PCC's board and its chief executive, Tracy Wolpert, followed by a special presentation or special guest, such as Jon Bansen of Organic Valley and Michael Funk, chief executive of UNFI, the distributor that delivers our wonderful products each day.
This year, we enjoyed a mini-documentary that transported us behind the scenes and around the clock in all nine stores and our office to share "A Day in the Life of PCC." After digesting all it takes to keep our co-op humming, I continue to marvel about one amazing fact from that video: that avocados are the No. 2 seller in our produce department. Any guesses as to the top selling produce item? Hint: It's a fruit.
Hope you'll join us for our fall meeting, Oct. 26!
