GEO 1 (III) Food Co-ops

In this theme we collect a variety of articles that consider both the successes and the occasional failings of the contemporary food co-op movement.  Conditions have changed dramatically since the emergence of food cooperatives as outlets for healthy, organic food in the 1960s and '70s.  Corporate behemoths like Walmart and Safeway now sell the organic products that once set co-ops apart.  Food co-ops are also facing questions about expansion--both of individual co-ops, and of the movement as a whole.
