Dana Marlin ’14: Green Top Grocery

During the spring semester, Dana worked with the Outreach Committee at Green Top Grocery. As a co-op grocery store setting roots in the Bloomington-Normal area, their success relies on bringing in new owners. greentop pic (1)Dana worked with Katie Novak and other committee members to bring awareness about what a co-op grocery store is and why eating local and supporting this local business benefits the community. Dana’s work included researching and developing social media strategies to increase and sustain owner & non-owner involvement. In addition, she developed contests that support local products and farmers, researched community events that Green Top should be present at, and looked into increasing their presence on the Westside.
