Food Chains

.
Sanjay Rawal / 2014
There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. Farmworkers, the foundation of our fresh food industry, are routinely abused and robbed of wages. In extreme cases they can be beaten, sexually harassed or even enslaved – all within the borders of the United States.
Food Chains reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets.

Press

  • "Food Chains is the kind of film I've been waiting to teach from - it helps students think not only about what's wrong with the food system, but how organizing for social change can help fix it. I know that students will come away moved, curious for more, and hungry for change - whose classroom could ask for more?"
    Raj Patel, Research Professor, Lyndon B Johnson School of Public Affairs, UT Austin, Author of "Stuffed and Starved"
  • "No documentary on the modern food system does a better job of putting farmworkers' struggles for social justice into the broad context of 21st-century capitalism. Food Chains explores the darkest corners of America's agricultural landscape, showing how an inspiring coalition of workers, farmers, and consumers are bending corporate might to fight for dignity in American farm fields. This is exactly the sort of provocative, well-researched film I've been wanting to use in my Food and Power course for years."
    Shane Hamilton, Associate Professor, History Department, University of Georgia
