“After months of waiting, Food Chains is finally hitting the theaters! Co-produced by Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser (producer of Food, Inc. and author of Fast Food Nation) and narrated by Forest Whitaker…’Food Chains’ — shot mostly in Tampa, Lakeland and the I-4 corridor — reveals the complicity of the supermarket industry [and] the abuse taking place in its supply chain and calls on viewers to demand that Publix use its market power to eradicate farmworker exploitation by joining the CIW’s Fair Food Program.

Five years into the campaign with Publix, we have a tool powerful enough to inform the entire state and country about Publix executives’ refusal to stand for the dignity of their farmworker neighbors. As a community that has been there since the beginning, this is our moment! Please help make this film the tipping point by spreading the word and inviting your community to the theater and to take action! A sold-out opening weekend means wider distribution in late 2014.”
