In Food Chains, an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their ingenious Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States.

Following the screening there will be a Q &A and panel discussion with the director Sanjay Rawal. Anna Lappé of Real Food Media and Joann Lo of the Food Chain Workers Alliance will be speaking about the launch of our new Voices of the Food Chain series featuring portraits and StoryCorps conversations among farmworkers, warehouse and distribution workers, line cooks, servers, and more across the food chain.
