Labor Across the Food System

February 3, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - February 4, 2012 @ 5:30 pm

FOOD SYSTEM WORKERS are often a glaring absence in discussions of the contemporary global food system, even though they are employed in some of the most labor-intensive industries within the entire economy, among them agricultural field work, food processing, food distribution, and restaurants of all kinds. The new food localism privileges questions of “where food comes from” over “how” and “who” questions about the conditions under which food is grown, shipped, processed, cooked, served, and sold. Labor Across the Food System will advance research and advocacy by bringing key scholars and advocates to Santa Cruz for discussions of the critical role of labor and social justice in remaking the global food system.
