Given the extreme challenges of 2020, I have a few hopes for 2021.

  1. Support a food system that protects people's health and the environment that have been negatively affected by Covid 19 in ways that assure food justice, equity and sustainability.
  2. Inspire companies to mark success on a human scale. Define success by metics like increased social consciousness and environmental responsibility rather than increased revenue year after year.
  3. A speedy adoption of vaccinations leading to an early return of community. Let’s strive to find political agreement and points of unification.
  4. Support for local food vendors that value people and the planet.
  5. Instill a sense of community within the store which is built around a collaboration of values that represent the heart of Ellwood’s.

Looking forward to a healthy and happy 2021.
