Sno-Isle Food Co-op will provide snacks beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The 82-minute documentary film, funded by 126 food co-ops in 36 states, examines the important historical role played by food co-ops, their pioneering quest for organic foods and their current efforts to create regional food systems. The film includes historical footage from the Great Depression years through the tumultuous 1960s, as food co-ops tried to establish themselves as an alternative to factory farms and corporate grocery chains. The film was created by award-winning filmmaker and co-op member Steve Alves.
