Florida-based Publix — one of the largest supermarket corporations in the country, whose purchasing power could strengthen the historic changes underway in Florida’s  fields — has instead unconscionably refused to join the Fair Food Program for more than five years.   Click here for more information, action ideas and resources.

Pax Christi Florida member, Lucy Fuchs, has written an excellent letter calling on Publix to support the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ Fair Food Program and has given us permission to share it with our members – it is found below.

We also recommend that you view the film Food Chain in this exposé, an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers – The Coalition of Immokalee Workers, battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry through their ingenious Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States.  Buy DVD on Amazon Watch now on iTunes or in your local Theater

she moves me

blogging for mother earth

by 

PCF Council Member, Jim Rucquoi

i want to sit on this rock with you awhile, friend, think out loud a bit. first up, these new readings i’ve bumped into that continue to shake me awake. ever since starting out on my bike three years ago for mother earth, mother’s been whispering in my ear something fierce. after climate ride california last year i can think of little else. scattered news of old that held me in its addictive clutches fails to move me anymore. you move me, mother, front & center at last.
