On Friday at 7:30 p.m., the Kelowna chapter of Amnesty International will present a provocative documentary about the plight of farm workers in Florida, called Food Choices.
The film will be shown in Room H-115 of the Okanagan College campus, 1000 KLO Rd.
Food Choices shows a group of Florida farm workers engaging in a week-long hunger strike at the headquarters of the major Florida-based supermarket Publix, part of the $4 million supermarket industry.
They ask for a one cent a pound raise for tomatoes in order to lift themselves out of slave-like conditions.
This is part of the Fair Food program whereby a partnership is formed with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm workers in the United States.
Admission to the film is by donation. For more information call 250-769-4740.
