This provocative new feature-length (85 min.) documentary film from Home Planet Pictures, tells the story of the co‐op movement in the U.S. through a combination of interviews, rare archival footage, and commentary by co‐op leaders and historians. No other film has examined the key role played by consumer‐led food co‐ops during the decades‐long debate over profit‐driven capitalism vs. locally‐controlled economic enterprises. Born in the heartland, cooperatives were seen as the middle path between Wall Street and Socialism. A 15‐minute excerpt from Food for Change was screened at the United Nations last year, where it was given an award.
