Announcing "Fair Food Fridays!"

On October 19th, members of Fair Food Austin came together to map the future of the Campaign for Fair Food locally. Several exciting projects are now underway, including the launch of Fair Food Fridays -- a recurring weekly event to create consciousness among consumers and maintain pressure on chains such as Chipotle and Subway who still refuse to take steps to improve the wages and working conditions of tomato pickers in their supply chains.

Starting on October 24th, join Fair Food Austin every Friday at noon at the Chipotle across from the University of Texas (2230 Guadalupe St.) for this brief but powerful demonstration of your support for fair food. Wear your CIW and SFA t-shirts if you got 'em; we'll provide flyers.

Also, Fair Food Austin is proud to co-sponsor the UT Palestine Solidarity Committee's free screening of "9 Star Hotel." The film screening and discussion takes place on Thursday, October 30th, at 7PM at UT campus (Burdine 216).
