Join Slow Food East Bay and the folks at Port Kitchens on the Kaiser Center roof deck for an evening celebrating worker-owned collectives — there will be eating, drinking, a film screening, speakers and more! Come learn how and why supporting co-ops in our food spending makes for a more sustainable system.


Eat (food for sale or BYO!) and drink (no BYO, sorry...) and mingle with representatives from Cheeseboard, Three Stone Hearth, Arizmendi, Alchemy Collective Cafe, Mandela Marketplace, Sustainable Economies Law Center, Project Equity. Hasta Muerte, Ubuntu Coffee Cooperative, Cultivate Community Food Co-op, BioFuel Oasis and more. As the sun sets behind downtown Oakland, find out more about what they do and how you can support them.


Move into meat of the evening with our panel of speakers, moderated by Therese Tuttle. Why do businesses choose to go 'collective'? What are the challenges they face, how do they govern and what does it mean for their workers and the products they offer? Are cooperatively managed businesses one solution to inequality in our food and economic systems?


Grab another drink and a bag o' popcorn and settle in on the couches (supplied) and camp chairs (BYO!) for a screening of 'Food for Change' an amazing history of food co-ops in the US, starting back in the Depression. Remember warm jackets and blankets!

Keep your money TRULY local, supporting community, democratic governance and good working conditions.

Now THAT'S a night well «spent»!
