Join a local Fair Food Group

Student, worker and activist led local Fair Food groups, which make up the Alliance for Fair Food, are making change across the country. Find one near you to ensure fair food in your city. Don’t see one? Start your own!

Look for the Label

Starting in 2014, the Fair Food label will be available in select grocery stores. When you are buying tomatoes, be sure to look for this logo in the produce section. If you don’t see it, ask the store manager why.

If your store is carrying this logo near their tomatoes, it means they are officially a part of the Fair Food Program, and have agreed to pay one more penny per pound to increase wages for farm workers, ensure safe working conditions and prevent forced labor.

If you want to shop for fresh Fair Food tomatoes, you can find them by visiting this map.

Join a Local Fair Food Group

The CIW’s national Campaign for Fair Food is truly a grassroots effort. These local chapters strategize social action, lead protests, educate consumers on the issue of farm labor exploitation, and forge alliances between farmworkers and consumers – all to encourage major corporate food buyers to end exploitation.  Since 2001, these groups have won campaigns against McDonald’s, Subway, Sodexo and Whole Foods, establishing more humane farm labor standards and fairer wages for farmworkers in their tomato suppliers’ operations. These groups will be filling theaters and making noise on November 21st. We hope you’ll join them.

  • To join a local fair food group, check out the list below.
  • To start your own local movement, email workers@ciw-online.org to receive the starter packet.

Put your Money where your mouth is

If you want to shop for fresh Fair Food tomatoes, use the map below to see select grocery stores and restaurants that are part of the Fair Food Program. When you go, don’t forget to thank the manager for joining the Fair Food Program.

The Fair Food Program is a groundbreaking model for social responsibility based on a unique partnership among farmworkers, Florida tomato growers, and participating buyers.  The FFP has been called “one of the great human rights success stories of our day” in a Washington Post op-ed, “the best workplace monitoring program” in the U.S. in the New York Times, and a “smart mix of tools” that “could serve as a model elsewhere in the world” by the United Nations Working Group on Business and Human Rights.

Within the Fair Food Program, participating buyers pay the “penny per pound” premium which tomato growers pass on to workers as a line-item bonus on their regular paychecks. The Program also includes a human-rights-based Code of Conduct. Learn more here.

Currently participating in the Fair Food Program

Aramark, Bon Appetit Management Company, Burger King, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Compass Group, McDonald’s, Sodexo, Subway, Trader Joe’s, Walmart, Whole Foods Market,  Yum Brands
