Event Details

In Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, author Jon Steinman discusses grocery stores' role in local food movements. Grocery stores exert considerable influence over the global food supply and in the communities we live. How do the largest grocers today maintain their grip on food makers, communities, and eaters? Author Jon Steinman offers a preview of the research that went into his new book and he recounts his experience as a food systems journalist that would eventually lead him to write a book about consumer-owned grocery stores (food cooperatives). Jon will share the amazing work food co-ops are doing in communities across the country. www.grocerystory.coop
