Farmworker coalition unveils Fair Food label

The Florida farmworkers Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a CCHD funded group that has worked with ACCU member colleges before, has announced that their new FairFood program label is now in use. When you see this label in stores you’ll know that the tomatoes are from farms that ensure the basic human rights of the women and men in the fields.

These rights include safe working conditions free of sexual violence and forced labor, and that the workers on those farms are receiving the Fair Food “Penny per Pound” bonus.
