Sponsored By: Social Work Association
Fair Food St. Louis is a student, youth, and community-led committee working in solidarity with the Student/Farmworker Alliance and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW)to eliminate sweatshop conditions and demand social responsibility in the global food system. The CIW's Fair Food Program creates a unique relationship between farmworkers, growers, and the corporations who buy Florida tomatoes. As a part of the program, corporations agree to only buy from growers who uphold strict standards of working conditions, including a zero tolerance policy for forced labor and sexual assault. Locally, Fair Food St. Louis is promoting this movement by focusing on the current target of the campaign, Wendy's, and the recently announced "Boot the Braids" campaign.
