Are your fresh tomatoes still exploiting farm laborers? Yes!

Drop off a letter to your store manager and let him or her know - you're not buying their greed and insensitivity?

National Supermarket Week of Action
Wednesday, Nov. 18th to Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26th
This Thanksgiving, when you shop for your turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing,
drop a Campaign for Fair Food letter off to the store manager!
While the transition to a more just Florida tomato industry is well underway, much remains to be done to ensure this future.

This Thanksgiving season, remember farmworkers and honor the dignity of their labor by urging Stop & Shop, Giant, Publix, Ralph’s, Kroger and other Kroger-owned grocery chains to address the sub-poverty wages and human rights abuses faced by farmworkers who harvest their tomatoes.
