Produce Employee Spotlight: Steven Van Zandt

VanZandtIf you have ever come into the produce department you have probably met Steven Van Zandt.  Steven is always ready to answer your questions, take you on tours of the store or give you a sample.  Steven has worked at Healthy Living for almost 2 years and he came to HL because he was looking to supplement his wild crafting as well as wanting to work somewhere that was connected to the community and had a positive working environment.  Steven loves Healthy Living because of how hard the owners work on the little everyday tasks to keep the store running and he really appreciates their vision for providing healthy food with an ethical and smart business model.  Steven also loves the importance of Customer Service and the support he gets from the company and his co-workers.  Steven is originally from Red Wing,Minnesota but he has moved around a lot before settling down in VT.  Steven has lived in Florida, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Texas, and California to name a few.  Steven loves Vermont because he lived in big cities for most of his life and he wanted to find a place that had a small town feel while still having all of the cultural benefits of a bigger city and Burlington was the perfect fit.  When not at Healthy Living you can find Steven in the forest foraging for mushrooms, downtown skateboarding or in Winooski at CCV taking classes for his Environmental Science major.  Come by the produce department Thursday-Sunday to say hi to Steven and ask him anything, he’d be glad to help.
