Sunday night, September 27, the Grassroots Organization of Waunakee (GROW) will show the award-winning documentary “Food Chains,” an informative and uplifting story of an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers who formed a grassroots labor organization to partner with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for laborers in Florida’s tomato fields.
Following the movie, UW Professor Lydia Zepeda will provide comments and lead the discussion. She is a professor of consumer science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, specializing in sustainable consumption, organic and local food systems, consumer-supported agriculture, family farm labor, labor policy, and other issues.
6:00 PM, at the Waunakee EMS Community Room, 200 North Klein, just north of the post office in Waunakee. See you there!
