We will mark CIW Thanksgiving Week of Action at the Publix supermarket at W. University Avenue and SW 34th Street in Gainesville 5-6 p.m. Monday November 18 once again calling on Publix to join other supermarket chains and fast-food corporations, tomato growers and distributors, and the workers who harvest the tomatoes in the Fair Food Agreement.

Thank you Chipotle!  We're so glad that your corporate management has agreed to sign the Fair Food Agreement and support fair wages and humane working conditions for the people who pick the tomatoes they buy.  Let's show our appreciation by visiting a nearby Chipotle where they now serve food with integrity.
