Film: "Food for Change" Ocean Beach Green Center Thursday, August 13, 7 p.m.
This month's film is "Food for Change," a 2013 documentary focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in North American culture. 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. The Ocean Beach Green Center is located at 4843 B Voltaire Street, 92107. For more information, call (619) 225-1083. Free of Charge.
