Join Us for A Meal & Conversation: Picket Lines & Produce Stands: Worker Power in Food Justice

Weds, April 1 | 6-8pm

@ The Omni Commons

4799 Shattuck Ave, Oakland

Behind that delicious #2 Burger & Fry Combo is a billion dollar fast food industry that not only erodes our soil, contaminates our water and destroys our health, but also serves up poverty wages and deadly working conditions to millions of fast food workers.

As food justice activists fighting to transition our food system away from industrial farming toward local, sustainable agriculture, how do we unite our frontlines with the very workers who plant, harvest, pack, transport, cook, serve, and compost our food?

As workers organizing for $15/hour and a union,how do we win not just respect and a fair wage, but also the power to transform the food industry itself into one that is good for both people and planet, for both our customers and our children?

From farm to plate, warehouse to compost, loading dock to drive thru, workers are the scholars of this rotten food system, placing them front and center in crafting solutions to the food, climate and economic crises.

 

Join us for a delicious meal and powerful conversation between food sovereignty activists and farmworkers, grocery workers, fast food workers, and restaurant workers about the future of our food system.

Free event. Accessible space.

Program will be bilingual – Spanish & English.

Childcare provided.
