Jon Steinman: The Magic of Food Co-ops

Tune in to hear about:

  • Jon’s personal interest in food, the food system and eating well.
  • The way consumer-owned grocery stores (aka food cooperatives) are being used to alleviate food deserts with fresh, local and natural items, not just to serve already-affluent communities.
  • Why co-ops are a huge benefit to communities.
  • A newer model of co-op ownership that allows for both consumer and employee investment and ownership rather than just one or the other.

Jon Steinman is producer and host of the internationally syndicated radio show and podcast “Deconstructing Dinner: Reconstructing Our Food System,” and the author of Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, which will be available in spring 2019.
