Farmworkers Feed the World

March 26, 2015

Did you know that this week is National Farmworker Awareness Week (NFAW)? The 16th annual event brings together students and communities to raise awareness about farmworker issues on campuses and in their communities. This year’s theme, “Farmworkers Feed the World,” is appropriate — 85% of the fruits and vegetables we eat are handpicked by farmworkers. Get involved with NFAW campaigns that are dedicated to various farmworker issues, including living conditions, pesticides, health, living wages, rights, and more.

Your purchases from the Good Buy help fund work on food sovereignty and living wages. One past example: the Food Chain Workers Alliance and UUSC partnered on public awareness campaigns and educational resources — including an awesome video about where our food comes from and all the workers involved in that process — that connect food workers’ issues and food justice.
