  • FOOD DAY 2014

    Five years ago, the Food Chain Workers Alliance was founded as a national coalition of unions, workers centers, and non-profit organizations to work towards a sustainable food system that respects the rights of workers all along the food chain - production, processing, distribution, retail and food service.

We've come a long way!
