We are planning some outdoor food cart activity, tours, samplings, and of course products for sale from our awesome FEED users! Look for more details soon!
Stop by the FEED Kitchens tent at the MadCityBazaar – 1st and 3rd Sat & Sun through September at East Wash & First St.

“Food Chains follows this high lauded group of tomato pickers as they battle gigantic agribusiness titans – the supermarket and fast food industry which purchase hundreds of billions of dollars of fresh fruits and vegetables each year. The group is asking these retailers to pay just a penny more per pound for their Florida tomatoes, which would nearly double the wages of workers, amongst the poorest laborers in the U.S.
Agriculture remains the backbone of America, generating billions of dollars of revenue for those atop the food chain. Those at the bottom, however, see very little of those profits. Farmworkers remain desperately poor, averaging about $12,000 per year in wages. Food Chains exposes the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of the supermarket”
