The South Philly Food Co-op is excited to present a screening of Food for Change, a feature-length documentary focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture.
About the film
The movie tells the story of the cooperative movement in the U.S. through interviews, rare archival footage, and commentary by the filmmaker and social historians. 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 the co-op movement strengthens communities where they are located, enhancing local economies and food security.
Doors open at 7pm and the screening will begin at 7:30 pm. The film runs 82 minutes, and we'll hold a short discussion at the end if you'd like to stick around and talk about how we can relate learnings from the film to our co-op.
This event is free, but admission will be capped at 25 tickets due to space limitations so go to our Ticketleap page to get your tickets NOW. Cinemug will offer food and beverage for sale.
