Who are the people growing our food, and what are their experiences? How, as informed eaters, can we make food choices that lead to fair wages and safe, humane working conditions? In conversations about building a sustainable food system, these questions are often ignored or overshadowed by other issues; in this episode of The Farm Report, they are front and center. Join host Lisa Held as she leads a panel discussion on agricultural labor in front of a live audience at Brooklyn’s Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD), featuring Coalition of Immokalee Workers senior staff member Gerardo Reyes Chavez, Rev. Noelle Damico of the Alliance for Fair Food, “Labor and the Locavore” author Margaret Gray, and Jody Bolluyt, a farmer at Roxbury Farm.
