‘Food Chains’ Opens Today Nationwide

Documentary explores harsh conditions of present-day farm workers

 

Food Chains chronicles the inspiring story of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the tomato pickers of Central Florida who have negotiated agreements with several of the leading players in the global economy.

The Fair Food Agreement mandates increased wages and improved working conditions in the fields, where physical abuse —and sexual harassment in particular—have been commonplace.
