Viewing of “Food Chains”

Join the InterReligious Task Force on Central America, a co-host of the Social Justice Teach-In, and CWRU’s Film Society for a viewing of Food Chains on March 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Strosacker Auditorium.

This film portrays the struggles Immokalee, Florida, farmworkers faced during a hunger strike at the headquarters of Publix supermarkets. They protested poor wages and working conditions and sought to pressure Publix to join the Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve conditions for farmworkers in the U.S.

This film sheds light on the human rights violations that farmworkers in the United States face when they don’t receive a living wage and are unable to support themselves and their families.
