Kristina Israel always wanted to work at a food co-op because, as she put it, “that’s where they sell the best food.” She got her chance in 2006 when she moved to Putney and was hired as a stocker at the Putney Food Co-op. She’s been there ever since, and is in currently in charge of marketing and outreach for the much-loved little store. Kristina was the founding manager for the Putney Farmers’ Market, and worked with the owners of The Gleanery to promote the community-supported restaurant in its start-up phase. She serves on the board of Discover Putney, and is a volunteer at the Putney Food Shelf. For her, food is the common thread that knits her community together. She lives in Putney with her husband of 10 years and their son, who just turned 5.
