Join farmers, cooks, community organizers, co-op members, and advocates for a special film screening and conversation on food, equity, and cooperatives on Wednesday, October 19.

We’ll be screening Food for Change, a documentary film focusing on food co-ops as a force for dynamic social and economic change in American culture.

The Food Trust’s regularly scheduled Common Ground Farmers Market will take place outside of Congregation Rodeph Shalom from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and will be joined by food trucks so you can get something delicious to eat before the event begins!
