boiseid-cnv-2016-food-chains-movie-showing-1On Friday September 9th, Idaho Peace Coalition, with Daniel Gamboa and other committed supporters of Campaign Nonviolence 2016 (CNV) presented the first of several Boise events with a showing of Food CHAINS ‘The Revolution in America’s Fields’ . All who attended were deeply moved by the American farm labor ‘back story’.

In this expose, an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their ingenious Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States.

It is poignantly clear; there are disparities of treatment in living and working conditions and some of America’s lowest wages paid to farm laborers.

The film Food Chains follows the way food is grown, harvested, distributed and marketed to American Families. Disparities in treatment of farm laborers, told in this ‘back story’ many of us do not see or hear, surely exemplifies what Jesus means when he says, “The workers deserve their pay…”
