Ithaca, NY: Greenstar Coop
April 27, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Come for the film, stay for the panel discussion to follow. GreenStar Natural Foods Market is a dynamic member-owned, community consumer cooperative, over 11,000 members strong. GreenStar celebrates fresh, whole foods, sustainable living and the transformative power of a strong local economy.
Joining a coop means becoming a member-owner, along with other cooperators worldwide. Food coops are changing the way business is done by placing people and environment first, and investing profits back into the co-op and community.
Food For Change is the first film to examine the important historic role played by food co-ops: their pioneering quest for organic foods, and their current efforts to create regional food systems. The film shows how cooperatives today strengthen local economies and build food security. This 82-minute documentary film focuses on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture.
