Screening of the Documentary, Food For Change: The Story of Cooperation in America by Turners Falls Filmmaker, Steve Alves
Food For Change is a feature-length documentary film focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture. The movie tells the story of the cooperative movement in the U.S. through interviews, rare archival footage, and commentary by social historians. This is the first film to examine the important 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. Great Hall of The Great Falls Discovery Center, 7:15pm
