Sacramento, CA: CA Co-op Conference with Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op
May 1, 2015 @ 8:00 pm
5:45 – 8 PM
CA Co-op Conference Mixer & Silent Auction
Co-op businesses come in various sizes and industries, from natural food co-ops
to housing co-ops, from large-scale agricultural producers to worker-owned businesses.
Yet all cooperatives, regardless of their shape, size or location, share a common
set of principles that serve as the foundation for a broader cooperative movement
worldwide: democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. Come learn about the cooperative
business model and meet members of California cooperatives. Enjoy appetizers and
light refreshments, bid on fabulous Silent Auction items!
Food for Change: a documentary about food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change
$5 suggested donation
Food for Change tells the story of the cooperative movement in the U.S. and examines the important historical 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 the co-op movement strengthens communities where they are located, enhancing local economies and food security.
