Tomato Rabbis and a Fair Food Victory

Tomato Rabbis and a Fair Food Victory

An awesome article from the Pursue Blog by Rabbi Rachel Kahn-Troster about Trader Joe’s becoming the second grocery store chain to sign a Fair Food Agreement with the  Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW), guaranteeing a wage increase for tomato pickers and ensuring that the company will only source from growers who agree to a code of ethical conduct in the fields. My heart goes out to migrant farm workers, who are often exposed to toxic chemicals, long hours under the sun, low wages, unstable job security, and human rights abuses. This is one step in the right direction for eating in a way that sustains us without sacrificing the well-being of others.
