Workers at Ralphs, Vons and Albertson’s grocery stores in the Southland are preparing to go on strike. KPCC reporters want to know how the last grocery worker strike -- in 2003 -- changed your food shopping behavior.

Did you avoid or cross a picket line? Did an unfamiliar store get your business? What new shopping habits did you develop in the strike that stayed with you? Whether you are a grocery worker or a shopper, what is your plan if there is another strike?
