I can tell you unequivocally that Worker Center Watch's claims could not be farther from the truth. How do I know? I'm part of that "industry" they claim to represent -- I'm a food service executive responsible for over $75 million per year in produce purchases.
Many of us in the faith community are realizing that it is inappropriate to bow our heads to thank God for our food without also lifting our heads to hear from our neighbors whose labor brought that food to our table.
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the remarkable farmworker organization in Florida that I have written about many times over the years as they continue to win victory after victory in their Campaign for Fair Food, has done it again.
While there is plenty of talk (and lots of good community work) coming from the "food movement," it is a still a long way from challenging the power of the corporate food regime. But it is growing fast.
