Grocery stores exert considerable influence over the global food supply and in the communities we live. How do the largest grocers today maintain their grip on foodmakers, communities, and eaters?

As part of his North American book release tour, author Jon Steinman offers up a preview of his new book, Grocery Store: The Promise of Food Co-Ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, including disturbing trends emerging among the dominant grocers. As Jon will share, community-owned grocery stores are more important today than ever before.

This free, drop-in event is co-sponsored by the Vernon Library, Sustainable Environment Network Society, and Monashee Community Co-op.
