Valley Natural Foods, along with food co-ops in more than 50 cities, including the Twin Cities, are bringing the acclaimed movie, Food For Change: The Story of Cooperation In America, to co-op owners and community members in October. All co-op owners are invited to a special screening at the historic Riverview Theater in Minneapolis. Afterwards, all are invited to stay for a Q&A session with director Steve Alves.
Food For Change is an 82-minute documentary film focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture. This is the first film to examine the important historical role played by food co-ops, their pioneering quest for organic foods, and their current efforts to create regional food systems. Additionally, the film shows how cooperatives today strengthen local economies and build food security. The goal is to educate a wide audience about the principles of cooperation with a focus on healthy food and a healthy economy.
