“Healthy Shopping on a Budget”
During the course of her many years in Atlanta, she often shopped at Sevananda and grew to love the iconic Co-Op, and of course becoming a member owner. In March of 2010 she was hired as a cashier and went on to work the Customer Service Desk. When a position in the Marketing Department became available, she applied and the rest is history. Sistar Ifini was an Assistant in Sevananda’s Marketing Department and among her varied duties, she coordinated Outreach, Store Demos, the Be The Change Program and the Artist Alliance Program. Since April 2017, she has evolved into a new position, Community Relations & Education Liaison. A perfect opportunity to spread good will and knowledge.
Her topic for the 5th Annual Wonderful Wizards of Raw will be “Pay Now or Pay Later ~ Healthy Grocery Shopping on a Budget”. As a single mother raising 3 children, Sistar Ifini learned how to shop healthy on a limited budget. She will share her knowledge of what to look for when shopping at regular grocery stores, as well as specialty markets like Sevananda. With an emphasis on reading food labels and what to be aware of regarding conscious food choices, this promises to be an informative and enlightening talk.
