Food Workers and the Food Movement are Uniting!

Across the country, activists and advocates, farmers and foodies are standing up to support the idea that food workers play a critical role in the success of the food movement. To date, nearly 100 food movement leaders have signed on to the Real Food Real Jobs pledge. These inaugural signatories come from all points along the food chain and the fight to fix it.

Can you take action to stand with this growing community of leaders by signing the Real Food Real Jobs pledge?

We want any and all folks engaged in the hard work of building a better food system to sign it and celebrate their commitment to working together for real food, real jobs, and real transparency throughout our food chain.
