More than a grocery store — talk social justice with Mariposa Co-op

The next Co-op and Social Justice book club will focus around food justice

Shopping at a cooperative grocery store is more than just a grocery experience. Participants In Mariposa’s Co-op and Social Justice Book Club have the opportunity to learn more about co-ops and how co-ops can be part of movements for justice and social change. This month, the book club will be reading Cultivating Food Justice: Race, Class, and Sustainability by Alison Hope.

Cultivating Food Justice describes efforts to envision and create environmentally sustainable and socially just alternatives to the food system. Bringing together insights from studies of environmental justice, sustainable agriculture, critical race theory, and food studies, Cultivating Food Justice highlights the ways race and class inequalities permeate the food system, from production to distribution to consumption.

This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome. RSVP at
