Fair Food Forum: A Conversation on Food Justice
March 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
Slow Food Cincinnati believes in knowing more about where our food comes from and who helps provide it for us so that we can effectively advocate for good, clean and fair food for all. This is why they are sponsoring a listening forum for the Coalition of Immokalee Workers – a worker-based human rights organization internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of social responsibility, human trafficking, and gender-based violence at work. The CIW was awarded the Presidential Medal for Extraordinary Efforts in Combating Modern Slavery in 2015, and has created a worker-initiated model for ensuring farm worker justice that is the gold standard in the United States.Two Ohio companies, Kroger and Wendy’s have not joined the highly-praised Fair Food Program created by the workers to ensure safety, freedom from forced labor and better wages and conditions. Join us to learn more about why this matters and how you can support them. CIW will also be joined by the Cincinnati Interfaith Workers Center and Our Harvest to discuss the Good Food Purchasing Policy, a food justice campaign with an emphasis on transforming purchasing policies at local school districts to align them with the values of the Fair Food Program.
