We Hired Our First Staff (2016)

Please welcome our FIRST HIRE at the Elk River Area Food Co-op....

Alyssa Johnson grew up in Elk River and graduated from the University of Minnesota - Duluth with degrees in both marketing and finance. Her plan is to make the co-op more visible in the community and strengthen the relationship between supplier (local farmers) and consumers (YOU, our members!). She has always been interested in nutrition and sustainability and wants to share her passion with her hometown and surrounding areas. When she isn't working hard for the co-op she spends her time lost in the woods, relaxing at the lake, or in the kitchen finding new recipes. Alyssa believes co-ops are the way of the future and can't wait to shop at the ERA Food Co-Op!
