Fair Food Program and the CIW in NYC Today

The Fair Food Program (FFP), spearheaded by the Coalition of Immokalee Worker (CIW) and the Florida Tomato Grower Exchange, is a partnership between farmworkers, Florida tomato growers, and tomato buyers.  Implement in 2010, this program works to provide better wages and working condition for tomato growers in the state of Florida.
Wendy’s, is the last of the five largest fast food corporations in the country not participating in the Fair Food Program. However, today, hundreds of people will be gathering at Union Square in NYC in a demonstration for farmworker justice and Wendy’s participation in the program.
