Kevin had the best time traveling across the country meeting people and touring food co-ops earlier this year. He was amazed at how different each one was, yet loved the common theme of the customers as owners. Watch the world premiere of "Co+op," Stronger Together's video series hosted by Kevin. You'll follow along as he goes to food co-ops across the country -- from grocery store aisles to fields -- and talks with people who have a passion for food. The first three episodes air on Saturday, January 21 at 8 p.m. on www.strongertogether.coop/premiere After that you can follow along with the series throughout the year. Take a look at more inspiring co-op stories from around the globe at www.stories.coop.
