Wheatsville Food Co-op believes that the cooperative business model is a most awesome model and we think more people need to know about it. That’s why we’ve contributed $5,000 to Food for Change in line with the project’s funding plan.
I can’t wait for there to be a high caliber documentary about the awesome and incredible history of food co-ops and to see a good survey of the many amazing and positive things co-ops are doing to improve the world and build community. We’re so proud of the great things happening in our co-op and the food co-ops across the country and we love the idea of sharing these stories in the eye-opening and heart-changing media of film. Over the years we’ve seen many great films help to change the world in a positive manner and I hope that this new food co-op documentary adds to the list of life and world changing documentaries.
As the only retail food co-op in Texas (with our closest neighbor 9 hours away in Arkansas!) we KNOW that more people need to hear the message of food co-ops. We hope that this film has impact on the many people that may have not yet experienced the transformative power of co-ops!
