Join farmworker families from Immokalee and Sarasota-area supporters for a lively Eat Local Week picket at the Publix Super Market on Bay Street. Together, we will call on Publix to join the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ Fair Food Program, a transformative solution to decades of farmworker exploitation that ensures better pay and respect for human rights for the people who make the food on our tables possible.
Despite calls from thousands of farmworkers and consumer allies - as well as agreements with other major supermarket chains including Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Walmart, The Fresh Market, and Stop & Shop - Florida’s hometown grocer has refused to join the Fair Food Program for more than six years.
For more information, please contact Claire Comiskey at the Alliance for Fair Food at email@example.com or (239) 313-1081. Participants are asked not to park in the Publix lot.
