"Food For Change" is a feature-length documentary about the history of the co-op movement and food co-ops today. The goal of the film is to raise awareness nationally about the cooperative economic model, promote cross-sector cooperative collaboration and provide cooperative education to co-op members, college students and the general public. The movie focuses on consumer food co-ops to tell the larger story of cooperatives — their role in American history and their current efforts to create local food systems.
This program is part of a series in honor of Co-op Month, celebrated annually in October across the United States for more than half a century. During Co-op Month, cooperative businesses work to inspire community discussion about food systems, fair food access and cooperative solutions to chronic food-related inequities and other issues.
The film will be held at the Wissahickon Valley Public Library in Blue Bell.
