Community Meeting + Whole Foods Action

Thanks to everyone who supported the CIW's recent visit to Austin. By all accounts, the weekend was a great success as members of CIW and SFA took the Campaign to Fair Food to thousands of consumers throughout the Texas capital. The Austin Chronicle, among others, is taking notice: "Fighting for Fair Food" (2/08/08).

From educational events to a high-energy Burger King protest to a visit to Whole Foods headquarters, the tour foreshadowed great things to come in the weeks and months ahead, including:
