The Food Project sponsors Food Chains documentary screening

Come and be inspired.


Join us for an exclusive, one-night-only showing of "Food Chains: The Revolution In America's Fields," an eye-opening look at America's farm labor and the coalition of tomato pickers from Florida who are revolutionizing their industry. Their story is one of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed—to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain. The film will be introduced by the youth and alumni of The Food Project, who teach about the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in their Food For Thought workshop series.  


Be sure to purchase your tickets before Feb. 5.
