In Part 2 of our episode on Other Avenues Grocery Cooperative, the conversation starts with food, food systems, and how humans can better steward the land and sea in our daily and collective lives.

Celia talks about how, with co-ops, money generally stays in the community. After a quick aside for Jeff's lasagna story, we discuss food preservation and distribution, the myth of food scarcity, and the idea of growing food in urban centers. Then Celia tells us about some other new co-ops opening in the Bay Area before sharing what it was like for her and Other Avenues during the​pandemic. She says that the biggest challenge was the keeping up with and enforcing the ever-changing rules.
