Cheers to Kath Duffy!

Cheers to Kath Duffy!

Kath Duffy began the organizing effort for the Dill Pickle in 2005 with a message to friends, envisioning a local co-op that would offer good, affordable food for everyone. She worked with a dedicated group of neighbors to usher that vision into reality on community funding, opening our store doors in 2009. Kath served on our board of directors and remained a trusted advisor as the co-op grew from its initial 500 to over 2,000 active owners.

Kath expanded into the universe on July 20, 2017. It was a peaceful transition into time, space, and eternal love. Join us in the Dill Pickle's new home for cider, cookies, stories, and a toast to our visionary founding owner! 

(DONATE in Kath's memory.)
