Meet the worker-owners behind local co-ops and collectives during an evening hosted by Slow Food East Bay and Port Kitchens. Join representatives from The Cheese Board Collective, Three Stone Hearth, Arizmendi, Alchemy Café, Mandela Marketplace, Sustainable Economies Law Center, and Project Equity to learn about their work and how you can support them. Relax with some popcorn for a screening of the film Food for Change, a history of food co-ops in the US, and a panel discussion about cooperatively managed businesses. Cost: $5 (no one turned away). Info and tickets: here
