October Events & Specials

 

Food co-ops are bringing their story to 50 cities, across the U.S. in the acclaimed documentary Food For Change. The screenings are occurring during October, National Co-op Month, and include college campuses and PBS broadcasts. A local show will take place in Cambridge, MN on Thursday, October 18, 7:00pm, at the Isanti County Historical Society (33525 Flanders St SE, Cambridge). The screening is hosted by City Center Market Food Co-op and Deli, located in Cambridge. The screening is free of charge and refreshments will be provided.

The film tracks the ups and downs of cooperatives from the Great Depression to the present through rare archival footage, animation, graphics, and interviews with co-op leaders. Co-ops are organizing screenings to educate their members and the general public about the nation’s longest surviving alternative economic system, which is also a social movement based on principles of cooperation.

Steve Alves, an internationally-acclaimed filmmaker and member of the Franklin Community Co-op in Greenfield, Massachusetts, narrates the film he directed. He sees the story’s theme of cooperation as particularly relevant to today’s political climate. “It’s American history, from the Great Depression to the present, with co-ops as the protagonist,” says Alves. Food co-ops introduced whole and organic foods to the American diet in the 1970s; today they are the champions of local food systems.

“Across the U.S. we’re experiencing both a renaissance and a challenge to food co-ops,” says Sean Doyle, General Manager of Seward Co-op in Minneapolis. “As food co-ops have grown to be successful businesses with annual sales of over $2 billion, they are facing fierce competition from corporate chain stores in the natural foods market they created. We want the public to know our story and what we stand for.”

“We are delighted that we can host a screening of this important movie,” Gayle Cupit, General Manager of City Center Market said. “We really want people to be aware of how much value co-ops add to our economy and to our communities – so they can participate!”
