Grocery Story Book Tour with Jon Steinman

Grocery Story Book Tour with Jon Steinman

Sep 7, 6:00pm - Sep 7, 8:00pm

312 Main312 Main StreetVancouver, BCV6A 2T2 Map

Vancity and the BC Co-operative Association are excited to welcome journalist Jon Steinman, author of Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, to Vancouver! Originally from Nelson, BC, Jon is touring across North America to talk about where your food really comes from and how consumer-owned grocery stores are more than retailers of fresh, organic, local produce: food co-ops contribute to a community's health and well-being.


Join us for an engaging evening including:

• An introduction and discussion of Grocery Story with Jon
Steinman
• Special guest and local food co-op, East End Food Co-op:
how Vancouver's very own food co-op is navigating growth
in our community
• A Q&A session with Jon Steinman, Vancity, BC Co-
operative Association, and East End Food Co-op
• Refreshments!

___________________________________________________________________

ABOUT THE BOOK:
For many of us fortunate enough to be able to purchase our food from a grocery store, rarely do we give ourselves the opportunity to inquire into the companies selling us the food. Who owns the grocery stores we shop at? What influence do these often national or multinational chains exert on the production, processing and distribution of food? How do these retailers contribute to the health and well-being of the communities they operate in and to what extent do they contribute or extract from local economies? These are just some of the big questions probed in Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants.

To launch the book, Steinman is touring across the U.S. and Canada throughout 2019 with visits to upwards of 130 food co-ops from coast to coast. The tour runs from April through December with dates posted at www.grocerystory.coop.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Jon Steinman is the producer and host of the internationally syndicated radio show and podcast Deconstructing Dinner (2006-2010) and of Deconstructing Dinner: Reconstructing our Food System - a television and web series currently streaming online. Jon was an elected director from 2006-2016 of the Kootenay Co-op - Canada's largest independent retail consumer food co-op, serving as Board President from 2014-2016. He lives in Nelson, British Columbia.
