With two decades as a food reporter and producer of Deconstructing Dinner, once ranked Canada's most-listened-to podcast, Jon Steinman shares his deep insights into food systems, the history of grocery chains, and the promise of food co-ops.  Jon touches on the multidimensional impact of co-ops on economic development, on food security, community health, and of course on physical health. 

His new book is Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, a thoroughly researched, eye-opening, gripping read that lays bare the complex dynamics of food systems and how every consumer participates in these systems through their purchase choices. 

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
