In the U.S., farm workers uphold the agricultural industry while simultaneously being 400 times more likely to experience food insecurity than the general public. They work long, arduous hours under the most punishing of conditions, and are literally unable to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Farm workers often face countless barriers when trying to get food, including low wages, poor or non-existent public transportation, and a lack of culturally-appropriate food. But this doesn’t have to be the reality.
As eaters, we can work to make sure the food we buy isn’t exploiting farm workers. How? By supporting farm worker led food programs and campaigns. Join us to learn more about how you can make a positive difference in the lives of farm workers through what you do and don’t buy.
This webinar is being hosted by the National Farm Worker Ministry and the Farmworker Association of Florida.
In this free webinar you will learn about:
- How Farmworker Association of Florida is working towards farm workers having access to safe, healthy, and culturally appropriate food.
- Four different food certification programs that bring together growers, farm workers, packers, distributors, retailers, and consumers to transform agriculture at various levels and improve the lives and working conditions of farm workers.
- Supporting farm worker union contracts and farm worker led campaigns.
Join us for this lively discussion, and invite your family and friends to participate too! You can share this flyer with others in your community.
