Film Screening: "Food For Change"

Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

We are proud to partner with Weaver's Way Ambler for a film screening of  "Food For Change." This feature-length documentary tells the history of the co-op movement and food co-ops today.  The movie focuses on consumer food co-ops to tell the larger story of cooperatives — their role in American history and their current efforts to create local food systems.

Part of an educational series of programs in honor of Co-op Month, celebrated annually in October across the United States.   During Co-op Month,  Wissahickon Valley Public Library in Blue Bell and Ambler, and Upper Dublin Public Library will each host an educational event with Weavers Way to inspire community discussion about food systems, fair food access and cooperative solutions to chronic food-related inequities and other issues.    

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to learn more about co-ops and their value in on our community.  Please register HERE.
