Have you heard more and more about horrific and unjust conditions farmworkers are facing due to the Covid-19 crisis, the fires in California, the increasingly spotlighted systemic racism of our food system?
Are you asking what you, as an eater who buys food for your family, can do differently? How you can avoid supporting our unjust and exploitative food system? How you can join the movement for food justice in a way that empowers workers and farmers?
This is precisely why we developed Food Justice Certification. So that eaters could vote with their food dollars, everyday, for a food system that uplifts farmworker, farmer, and food chain worker rights, livelihoods, and protections, all via living wages, empowerment, and transparency.
1. Look for, buy from, promote, and thank Food Justice Certified farms for caring about the people working on their farms enough to meet these high standards.
2. Thank, promote, and buy from businesses that care about the people that work for them and the farmers they buy from enough to get Food Justice Certified.
3. Ask farms to get Food Justice Certified to grow the movement for food justice and to demonstrate their commitment.
4. Ask food retailers and local restaurants to buy from Food Justice Certified farms and ask them to get Food Justice Certified as a Fair Company themselves!
