Would you like to see more fresh locally grown food available in the metro? Fargo Public Access television channel 99 will be broadcasting through the month of December “Food for Change”a grass roots documentary that helps explain the evolution of our country’s food production and marketing.
Watch the trailer for “Food for Change” here:
Food For Change is a feature-length documentary about the history of the co-op movement and food co-ops today. The goal of the film is to raise awareness nationally about the cooperative economic model, promote cross-sector cooperative collaboration, and provide cooperative education to co-op members, college students and the general public. 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.

“If organic farming is the natural way, shouldn’t organic produce just be called “produce” and make the pesticide-laden stuff take the burden of an adjective?”
