What’s The Book About?
For many of us fortunate enough to be able to shop at a grocery store, rarely do we inquire into the companies selling us the food. Who owns the grocery stores? How do these retailers contribute to the health and well-being of the communities in which they operate? To what extent do they contribute or extract from local economies? Some disturbing trends are emerging among the dominant grocers. As Jon will share, community-owned grocery stores are more important today than ever before. These are just some of the big questions probed in Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants.
