Learn about the farmworker struggle for fair wages and just working conditions at 7:00 pm in the Parish Hall.  Then join them for the premiere of the feature length documentary “Food Chains” on Friday, November 21st at the AMC theater in Altamonte Springs (433 E. Altamonte Drive).

The film is co-produced by Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser and narrated by Forest Whitaker.  It features the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ (CIW) Campaign for Fair Food as the solution to the exploitation and abuse of farmworkers in the US. The film also presents a call to action for viewers to contact food retailers like Publix to use their power to eradicate abuse in their supply chains.  Watch the trailer here: http://bit.ly/foodchainstrailer.

A member of CIW will be hosting talkbacks after the evening shows on Friday, November 21st and Saturday, the 22nd.  Then join the farmworkers in action for a peaceful picket on Sunday, November 23rd at 4;30 pm at the Publix on Lake Eola.
