with Jon Steinman
Grocery giants are shaping our food systems, the health of our farms, and the quality of our food. Food co-ops present a powerful avenue for consumers and producers to reclaim their power to shape the health of their communities, their food systems & personal health.
Jon Steinman, author of Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, touches on:
How a handful of giant grocers have shaped the continent’s food systems.
The ways in which co-ops help ensure affordable food, as well as fair food pricing that ensures a sustainable, livable income for farmers.
How food is inherently intertwined with physical health, community prosperity, and overall community health.
Jon’s book tour is taking him through Vermont this week, and he will be visiting co-ops all over the country in the next few months.
