FOODCHAINSPOSTERThursday, April 30, 2015

Nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award for best documentary film, Food Chains  reveals the human cost in our food supply chain and the complicity of larger buyers of food such as fast food chains and mega-supermarkets. The film follows the grassroots farm worker organization, Coalition of Immokalee Workers in Florida, and their efforts to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane and transparent food chain.  Executive producers include Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser (Food Inc. and Fast Food Nation).  Discussion after the film with  Jackie Cody and Jolene Knox of the Northern Wisconsin Center for Working People.
