Join Us at River Arts as we host Jon Steinman author of Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Coops in the Age of Grocery Giants
Summary of Event:
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 foodmakers,
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.
