The 5th Annual Sustainability Film Series continues... Food Chains presents an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers battling to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States.
There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets.
The Sustainability Film Series is brought to you by the Bell Museum of Natural History in partnership with the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment/Sustainability Studies Minor and University Dining Services.
