Farmworker Justice Celebrates Food Day 2012

food day news web

Food Day is an opportunity to celebrate real food and the growing movement to fix the food system that includes addressing the working and safety conditions of farmworkers.

Food Day is a chance to celebrate what our food system does right, and take action to bring us closer to a food system with “real food” that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it. Food Day’s priorities are to:
• Support fair working conditions for food and farm workers
• Promote safer, healthier diets
• Supporting sustainable and organic farms
• Reduce hunger
• Reform factory farms to protect the environment

Farmworker Justice was excited to be a part of the planning process for Food Day and share with the public the contributions that agriculture and farmworkers make to local communities. Food Day is not just a day-long event, but an opportunity to make a permanent change that supports a more sustainable and healthy future for farmworkers and the public.
