Drink a local beer and listen to a presentation by author Jon Steinman. He will explain how the almighty dollar has been squeezed hard in recent years by grocery giants and other corporate interests leaving only a few pennies for farmers and workers at the end of the supply chain. If you already like local food, Jon will give you a few more reasons to add to your list and he will help us sharpen our skills to be more effective ambassadors for the cause.
Jon Steinman, author of Grocery Story: the Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, has studied and worked with all things food for over two decades. Jon was an elected director from 2006-2016 of the Kootenay Co-op – Canada's largest independent retail consumer food co-op. Bring a friend who might want to be an owner of the Food Shed Co-op.
