Tosh Lewis

Why are you interested in serving on the board of Bloomington Cooperative Services (BCS)?
To continue to represent the interests of my fellow member-owners as well as those of my coworkers.

What experience or involvement have you had with Bloomingfoods or other cooperatives?
I have been an employee of Bloomingfoods for over six years and a board member for three.

What has been your experience working cooperatively with small groups of people?
I’ve spent a lot of time on committees in my life from high school to the editorial team of my college newspaper to the             Bloomingfoods board.

Please share any professional, volunteer, or life experience you have had that will provide insight when serving on the BCS Board of Directors. Include knowledge, skills, formal training, and education that will contribute to the mission of our co-op.
Aside from my work, come from a family of Bloomingfoods member-owners, many of whom have shared their passion for and knowledge of food issues with me.

How do your values and lifestyle align with the values and mission of the co-op?
I’ve been going to the Co-op since I could walk, so in many ways Bloomingfoods has shaped my values and lifestyle.

Given the stated Ends of BCS, what do you see as the primary role of BCS in the community?
Bloomingfoods is the instrument by which the community exerts control over the local food system.

What are opportunities and challenges you see for BCS in the future expression of these Ends?
Between potential expansion opportunities and the future of the East side store, we have no shortage of opportunities to better express our ends. These opportunities will naturally come with many challenges.

Please share any other brief statement that you feel is important regarding your potential service as a member of our board.
It’s been a pleasure to serve these last three years. With your approval I will be pleased to continue my faithful service.
