Fair Food Standards Council 2015 Annual Report Launch

Date:
February 4, 2015
Location:
The NoVo Foundation, 535 5th Ave # 33, New York, NY 10017
Description:

As the first Fair Food Program label hits the aisle of your local supermarkets, the Fair Food Standards Council (FFSC) is releasing its third annual report. The report documents how the groundbreaking model of Worker-driven Social Responsibility, created by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), has transformed the Florida tomato industry into the “best working environment in American agriculture.” In 2015 the Program expanded up the coast to tomato farms in six additional states from Georgia to New Jersey.

Expect lively conversation between FFSC, the CIW, journalists, donors, scholars, allies, and workers exploring the significance of the program, its rapid and ongoing expansion (strawberries and bell peppers are already in progress) and the incredible excitement that is generating in other sectors from construction workers to dairy workers and from the domestic to the international.  

More information to come in the new year!
