Social responsibility or the concern for the health and well-being of all individuals within our communities contributes to bettering society at large. East End Food Co-op has policies in place to ensure sound social responsibility practices in regard to employees and benefits; access and pricing; local and organic foods; and community activism, such as providing education on healthy eating and supporting efforts to develop regional sustainable resources.
With efforts in place to support sustainable community through a triple-bottom-line commitment (people, planet, and profit) East End Food Co-op demonstrates socially responsible behavior as related to its cooperative principles, but of course, there is always room for improvement.
One way to further cultivate a sense of social responsibility in your own life and on behalf of East End Food Co-op is to help steer the direction our Co-op will take in the years to come by running for election to the Board of Directors. Directors help craft responsible policy and metrics related to EEFC’s participation in the Pittsburgh community.
