Author reading--Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: What Eating Closer to Home Can Teach Us about Food, Community, and Our Place on Earth

Close

Tue, 01/28

Free event at Village Books.

Taking the locavore movement to heart, bestselling author and social innovator Vicki Robin pledged for one month to eat only food sourced within a 10-mile radius of her home on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, Washington. Her sustainable diet not only brings to light society's unhealthy dependency on mass-produced, prepackaged foods but also helps her reconnect with her body and her environment.

Robin has been at the forefront of the sustainable living movement. She has received awards from Co-op America and Sustainable Northwest and was profiled in Utne Magazine's book Visionaries: People and Ideas to Change Your Life. She lives on Whidbey Island in Washington.

The Co-op Board of Directors is looking forward to meeting with member-owners to discuss the plans for expansion and improvements at the Downtown store. We’ll hear from Co-op General Manager Jim Ashby and Architect Neil McCarthy about the plans to expand the deli, ease the parking pressure downtown, and improve the shopping experience in general. Following the presentation, member-owners will have a chance to share what they think of the plans so far, and to imagine how to make our “Co-op corner” a vibrant community hub.
