New 2016 Board Members


Kathy Burke

Keene, 4-year resident
Board Incumbent

It has been an honor to serve on the Co-op board for 4 years.  I am currently the President of the Board and would be grateful for the opportunity to continue strengthening board systems and supporting our General Manager as we move into the future. I have over 20 years of co-op experience and if reelected, I will persist, cooperatively, in creating a strong foundation to ensure the co-op’s continued success.

Keene, 37-year resident
Director of Housing, Keene Housing

I am seeking a seat on the Board of MFC because I have past non-profit as well as professional experience that may be useful to the Co-op.  I have a willingness to serve and I am interested in learning more about cooperative business concepts.  I am passionate about the challenges that come from income inequality and poverty – health status, food access, educational outcomes, housing stability, and personal self-efficacy.  I am interested in exploring the role that the Food Co-op can play in addressing food security gaps in our community.  I have the time, the skills and the interest to play a more active role in the MFC.



Anton Elbers

Alstead, 45-year resident
Member, Orchard Hill Farm
Board Incumbent

I have enjoyed serving on the Board these past three years with other board members, learning and helping to guide the Co-op in its growth. I wish to help the Co-op continue to grow and expand its service to the member-owners and the larger community.
