Shaun Starr

Shaun Starr

Board Member

I am interested in serving on the HFC Board because I would like to make our community a better place to live, and I care and believe in the vision of the Hillsboro Food Co-op. The quality of our lives in downtown Hillsboro has been impacted by the loss of Hanks. When members of our community rose up in support of the Hillsboro Food Co-op, my spirits were lifted. And now it is the time for me to step up and take an active role in making this urgent need a reality.
