Meet our Fresh Stop Market leaders for 2018:
Chef Liaison: Lorita Rowlett. Lorita is a teacher at Westport Middle School. One of her biggest passions is cooking, especially with her Fresh Stop Market share. Lorita is famous for her butternut squash mac and "cheese" recipe, which has become urban legend!
Check in Leader: Cybil Flora
Cybil Flora first learned about the Fresh Stop Market movement in 2014, through her synagogue, Congregation Adath Jeshurun. Since then, Cybil has been a fearless leader, not only as check-in leader at the Parkland Fresh Stop Market, but as a liaison to her synagogue, community organizer to build the Markets, and a volunteer on the New Roots Board Leadership Development Team and "behind the scenes" office volunteer. Cybil is an incredible cook, and enjoys spreading the joy of affordable, farm-fresh food.
Site Leader and Day of Team: Barbara Broughton
Barbara Broughton spent four years as a founder and leader at the Shawnee Fresh Stop Market, where she still serves as check-in leader. Three years ago she successfully advocated for her home church—Pleasant View Baptist Church—to become the site for the first Parkland Fresh Stop Market, and the rest is history. She's had three years of brightly leading her church members—main of them elderly—to step up and help build this movement. She works as an administrative assistant at a local nonprofit organization, and also enjoys being active in her church and her local girl scout troop.
Site Leader and Farmer Liaison: Theresa Sistrunk
Ms. Theresa Sistrunk is one of the founding members of the Parkland Fresh Stop Market. As a trustee at Pleasant View Baptist Church, she has been instrumental acting as a liaison between the Market and the Church, and spreading the word to all of her co-workers at the University of Louisville Hospital in downtown Louisville.
