(p.190) Epilogue The Age of the “Organic-Industrial Complex”
Food Co-ops in America

Anne Meis Knupfer

Cornell University Press

This concluding chapter looks at food cooperatives that have been established in the last ten or so years. Among them are the Alberta Food Co-op, located in the renovated northeast neighborhood in Portland, Oregon; the Lost River Food Co-op, stationed in a poor, rural community in Paoli, Indiana; and the co-ops in the South Bronx and the Bay area, which serve African American communities. The establishment of these and other new food co-ops suggests that the cooperative movement remains strong. The chapter stresses on how important it is for members to learn about their co-ops' histories. Posting previous annual reports, and having a presence on social media websites which appeal to younger members, are some of the ways of reaching out to the next generation of co-opers. In this way, members would better understand how they stand on other co-opers' shoulders.
