Who owns your grocery store?
Coos Bay Public Library, in partnership with Coos Head Food Co-op, will co-host Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants by author, Jon Steinman. Steinman examines the role of food co-ops through an eye-opening account of the history of grocery retailing in America, the rise of the chain grocers and the impact these grocery giants have had on the entire food system. He will be offering a compelling talk to re-inspire co-op members and engage anyone who cares about the future of food. Refreshments will be available from the co-op and other local vendors.
Event is FREE and open to everyone, no registration required!
