At Seward Co-op we are grateful to the fantastic staff members who keep the co-op running smoothly. They bring laughter and passion to each day and their jobs. Eve (she/her), Bakery Supervisor at the Creamery production facility, exemplifies this.
Eve’s passion for cooking, food justice, and sustainability led her to the co-op after she graduated college. Galvanized by the outcome of the 2016 election, she wanted a role that had ties to the community. Eve says Seward Co-op aligned with many of her values, helped her meet wonderful people and allows her to make delicious food. Her favorite thing about being Bakery Supervisor is having a job where she takes baking pastries and sweets very seriously. Knowing that the food she makes is bringing joy to people in our community in a time of a lot of social turmoil is something that keeps Eve going.
When she started at the co-op, she worked at the Friendship store in the Cheese department. Later, she transferred to the Bakery because she wanted to develop skills in food production. A full-time job with great benefits drew Eve to the co-op, but she’s stayed for over five years because of the relationships she’s developed with her coworkers, who she describes as both deeply caring and deeply skilled. Lately, she’s been working with her team to create new recipes and flavors—she loves the collaborative effort. Find many of them in the Bakery case at the Delis at both stores!
