In this episode, we cover the inspiring story of the Copenhagen Food Coop, a member-owned alternative to mainstream grocery stores which allows people to not only have regular access to fresh local food, but also to make decisions about what foods the coop purchases and how the coop is run.
NOTE: This episode was recorded before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Though some of the activities mentioned in this episode – such as community harvest celebrations and group farm visits – are currently ‘on hold’, the work of the Copenhagen Food Coop and other groups to build strong local food economies has never been more important.
