Initially, Steven was interested in designing and building the new Co-op store. After lunch with a Board Member, he became more interested in all the wonderment of bringing a Co-op to Manchester. A lifelong Mancunian and community activist for good living in the City, the Co-op became his prime focus for the betterment of the Community of Manchester and all its residents and visitors.

Clean and Healthy Eating with Randy Clemens
My name is Randy Clemens, and I am a freelance food writer. I am a graduate of the California School of Culinary Arts, a BJCP Recognized Beer Judge, a Libertarian, and a proud vegetarian. On the writing front, I'm the author of The Sriracha Cookbook and The Veggie-Lover's Sriracha Cookbook as well as the co-author of The Craft of Stone Brewing Co.: Liquid Lore, Epic Recipes, and Unabashed Arrogance. In addition to previously serving as the Associate Digest Editor for Los Angeles magazine, I've written for several major food publications including Gourmet, Saveur, Los Angeles, Imbibe, Wine Enthusiast, Draft, BeerAdvocate, and Edible Westside.
When I'm not eating, drinking, writing, or reading, I can be found running in my awesome Luna Sandals (or barefoot), singing barbershop with Pacific Coast Harmony, or traveling anywhere in search of adventure. I'm an avid traveler and travel writer, with more and more countries (and U.S. states!) getting ticked off the bucket list. Still plenty more to go to, but my wanderlust has thus far taken me to Mexico (Oaxaca and throughout Baja), Canada (Montreal), Vietnam and Thailand (twice!), Myanmar, Korea, Spain, the Canary Islands, France and Belgium (twice!), Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands (twice!), and the Czech Republic.

Julie Baron from Make-A-Wish New Hampshire
Make-A-Wish New Hampshire grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Make-A-Wish New Hampshire was founded in December of 1986 and granted its first Wish in January of 1987. Since that first Wish, the New Hampshire chapter has granted more than 1,252 Wishes for children here in our state.
The children they serve are all too familiar with doctors and hospitals. Caring for these children involves much more than medical treatment. Our goal is to be an integral part of the treatment process. With doctors providing the medicine, and Make-A-Wish supplying the joy and magic, this team strives to create miracles in the lives of some very special children. Make-A-Wish believes that all children need hope, strength and joy in their lives. Their passion is to make Wishes come true for all of New Hampshire's eligible children.
Julie Baron is the Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish New Hampshire where she oversees organizational strategy and direction.
One of Julie's passions is to create a strong vision and mobilize organizational resources to capture that vision and obtain results. Since joining the Make-A-Wish staff in 2004, Julie has passionately worked with our wish families, volunteers, donors and community to spread the Make-A-Wish mission.
Assisting Julie in her success at Make-A-Wish is her 25+ years of experience in leadership and management. Julie spends her time furthering her leadership skills by participating in programs such as Leadership Lakes Region and Leadership New Hampshire. She is a Rotarian and has been an active participant with the Queen City Rotary Club in Manchester, New Hampshire.
Julie is passionate about her work with the Make-A-Wish Team and is honored to serve with an organization that brings so much joy to New Hampshire Children with life-threatening medical conditions. She loves enriching the human experience by bringing hope, strength and joy to the children of New Hampshire, and with her team plans to do so for many years to come.

Donna Earl Johnson, a country girl with the heart of a soul diva, was born and raised in the small community of Iron Hill in the city of Newark, Delaware. The wife of Theadore Johnson Jr., the mother of one daughter Krystle Johnson and the other mother (stepmom) to Izem and Kareem (deceased) Coleman. The art and love for cooking came as a gift that was bestowed on my life at a very young age and I have been perfecting this craft ever since. While vacationing, Christmas 2014, in the Grand Cayman Islands I was blessed with the honor of meeting Carol Lawrence. Being two kindred spirits, we formed an amazing bond over food and fun. I believe that, "Life is for Living and Food is for Giving" and I plan to share this passion for food and existence with all who I am fortunate enough to meet on my journey.
