Port Kitchens
344 20th Street, Oakland, California 94612
Film screening, speaker's panel and more! Join Slow Food East Bay and the folks at Port Kitchens for an evening on the roof deck celebrating worker-owned collectives and learning how and why we should support co-ops in our spending.

Start the evening eating (food for sale or BYO!) and drinking (no BYO, sorry...) and mingling with representatives from Cheeseboard, Three Stone Hearth, Arizmendi, The Juice Bar Collective, Alchemy Cafe, Mandela Marketplace, Sustainable Economies Law Center, Project Equity and others. As the sun sets over downtown Oakland, you'll have time to find out what these local collectives do and how you can support them.

Around 7pm, grab another drink and a bag o' popcorn and settle into couches (supplied) and camp chairs (BYO!) for a screening of 'Food for Change' an amazing history of food co-ops, starting in Depression-era United States.

The evening will be capped off with our panel of local collectives representatives, hearing about why businesses choose to go 'co-op', the challenges they face, how they govern and what it means for their workers and the products & services they offer.

Learn how to keep your money TRULY local, supporting community, democratic governance and good working conditions.

Now THAT'S a night well «spent»!
