Storyline

There is so much interest in food these days yet there is almost no interest in the hands that pick that food. In the US, farm labor has always been one of the most difficult and poorly paid jobs and has relied on some of the nation's most vulnerable people. While the legal restrictions which kept people bound to farms, like slavery, have been abolished, exploitation still exists, ranging from wage theft to modern-day slavery. These days, this exploitation is perpetuated by the corporations at the top of the food chain: supermarkets. Their buying power has kept wages pitifully low and has created a scenario where desperately poor people are willing to put up with anything to keep their jobs. Written by Anonymous

*Think* about where your food comes from
16 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Immokalee, Florida is right in my backyard....I live in nearby Naples. This peaceful struggle for fair food has been a mission of the church I belong to since the 1990's. This documentary is very well done and historically accurate. I can only keep hoping and advocating for PUBLIX grocery stores to sign on to the Fair Food Agreement. I've basically quit shopping there. It would cost Publix a minuscule amount of $$ to sign on compared to the millions of dollars they make in profits. So, I will keep marching WITH the Coalition of Immokalee Workers when they peacefully demonstrate in front of Publix. A HUGE march & parade is planned for March 21, 2015 in St. Petersburg, FL.
