Why do I work at AWG?

“It’s hard to find a native Kansan who doesn’t have family living in a small town community and I am no exception. My family tree is full of farmers who have helped put food on our tables for over 100 years. So when I hear of a small town’s only grocery store closing down it hits home. Even though I now live in a big city, I like to know through my work I can help keep small independent grocery stores open for future generations to enjoy.” -Sharlyn
