In the book Grocery Story, Jon Steinman shares the stories of food co-ops. So, I wanted to learn more about the history of a food co-op on my own. I found an interesting miniature documentary on The Twin Cities Food Co-op.

Food For Change: The Twin Cities Story

From the video description:
"Food For Change: The Twin Cities Story, portrays the advantages of regional co-operation in the Minneapolis -St Paul area of Minnesota. This 15-minute film is an offshoot of the feature-length documentary about co-ops, Food For Change. www.foodforchange.coop"

Another interesting story of a co-op I found out about is the Mandela Grocery Cooperative- Mandela Coop YouTube Playlist.

1/6 Mandela Coop - Quinton Sankofa - West Oakland history and Mandela Marketplace

From the video description:
"Quinton Sankofa explains the history of West Oakland and the context for the Mandela Marketplace."


What are some other interesting stories of food co-ops?
