Food has become ground-zero in our efforts to increase awareness of how our choices impact the world. Yet while we have begun to transform our communities and dinner plates, the most authoritative strand of the food web has received surprisingly little attention: the grocery store - the epicenter of our food-gathering ritual.
Through analysis and inspiring stories and examples of American and Canadian food co-ops, "Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants" makes a case for the transformation of the grocery store aisles as the emerging frontier in the local and good food movements.
Jon Steinman has studied and worked with all things food for over two decades. He was the producer and host of the syndicated radio show and podcast "Deconstructing Dinner."
