Meet the Author: Grocery Story by Jon Steinman
April 30, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pmFree
Food has become ground-zero in our efforts to increase awareness of how our choices impact the world. Yet while we have begun to transform our communities and dinner plates, the most authoritative strand of the food web has received surprisingly little attention: the grocery store—the epicenter of our food-gathering ritual.
Through penetrating analysis and inspiring stories and examples of American and Canadian food co-ops, Grocery Story makes a compelling case for the transformation of the grocery store aisles as the emerging frontier in the local and good food movements. Author Jon Steinman:
- Deconstructs the food retail sector and the shadows cast by corporate giants
- Makes the case for food co-ops as an alternative
- Shows how co-ops spur the creation of local food-based economies and enhance low-income food access.
Grocery Story is for everyone who eats. Whether you strive to eat more local and sustainable food, or are in support of community economic development, Grocery Story will leave you hungry to join the food co-op movement in your own community.
Meet Author Jon Steinman here in the co-op cafe on April 30th from 10am – 6:30pm. Jon will be here during the day starting at 10 am selling copies of his book, and then from 5 – 6:30 pm he will be doing a reading and book signing. This event is free to the public. RSVP is helpful so we can better keep track of logistics and attendance for events like these!
