Opening Doors Inc. screening of the film, Food Chains

The film documents the work of an intrepid group of tomato pickers from south Florida, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW). After decades of struggle, the CIW has radically transformed the Florida tomato industry, once known as “ground zero for modern-day slavery” through the Fair Food Program, a groundbreaking partnership between farmworkers, Florida tomato farmers and some of the largest food retailers in the world.
