Attention Cooperators!

So much is happening with Food For Change! Since the film’s release it’s been shown at over 100 events in 30 states. And it’s just the beginning. The advent of the online digital age has changed the map of media distribution. If we are able to put in the time and effort needed to build connections between people and organizations, there is little to stop us from reaching millions of people on the benefits of belonging to a co-op. Please read our Outreach & Distribution Plan. Let’s work together, following Cooperative Principles 5, 6, & 7. Now is the time for a National Cooperative Education Campaign!  Read more here…

A $10,000 grant from Frontier Co-op will help co-op members, the general public, and college and high school students across the country learn about cooperatives using the documentary Food For Change! Their contribution will help up to 30 co-ops receive a discounted copy of the two DVD set of Food For Change. Also in this newsletter, we give an overview of the Co-op Month screenings nationwide, and Steve Alves’ tour to six cities around the country. Read it here.

Great News! Our film about food co-ops in the Twin Cities was selected as a Winner of the United Nations International Year of Cooperatives (IYC) Short Film Festival held at the UN headquarters in New York City last month. Several co-op leaders, myself, and members of my crew travelled to New York to receive the award. We produced this 15-minute film– a chapter from the feature-length film Food For Change– to gain advance publicity for the feature film to be released in Spring 2013, and to show strategies to expand the cooperative movement in the United States and throughout the world.
