DocNight "Food Chains"


The Portico
1001 N Florida Ave 33602 Tampa United States
Come experience this exposé, an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States. Participate in the group discussion and opportunity for **public witness** following the film.

Second Floor of Administration Building

The narrative of the film focuses on a group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida– the Coalition of Immokalee Workers or CIW - who are revolutionizing farm labor.

On Thursday, May 26, The Portico will host a screening and discussion session for this powerful documentary. The film carries a compelling call to action for every viewer to demand that retailers use their power to eradicate abuse in their supply chains.

After the film, there will be a group discussion. A CIW member and representative from the Alliance for Fair food will offer a brief synopsis of what's happened since the film's release.

**Opportunity for Public Witness**
Immediately following the film screening and discussion, our co-hosts will lead a group prayer, vigil and letter delivery at a local supermarket.

***This event is FREE and open to the public. All are welcome.***
