The mission of the Montavilla Food Coop is "to enhance the quality of life for both residents and visitors by providing access to affordable, healthy food in an environment shaped by the community's values."

GRANITO DE ARENA: GUATEMALA'S JOURNEY TO JUSTICE

Granito is an expression of the indigenous people of Guatemala...none of us can do it alone, each must put in their granito, their tiny grain of sand.  Direct descendants of the ancient Maya, the indigenous of Guatemala make up 40% of the population.  With the help of the U.S. government, as many of 200,000 of them and their supporters, the future leaders of Guatemala, were masacred in the early 1980s. Documentary filmaker Pamela Yates witnessed the genocide and found she had her own granito, evidence to help nail a dictator.
