October is National Co-op Month! Help us celebrate the rich history of cooperative economics and food cooperatives in the United States. Join us for this FREE screening of Food for Change, an 82 minute documentary created by Steve Alves, followed by a discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker.

"Food For Change is an 82-minute documentary film focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture. This is the first film to examine the important historical role played by food co-ops, their pioneering quest for organic foods, and their current efforts to create regional food systems. Additionally, the film shows how cooperatives today strengthen local economies and build food security. The goal is to educate a wide audience about the principles of cooperation with a focus on healthy food and a healthy economy.”
