Who Grows Food for our Feasts?

These resources provide education and links that help families and congregations build awareness of our dependence upon the gifts and energies of farmworkers; especially as we enter soon into a season where we will gather often around the table!

Disciples Refugee and Immigration Ministries also encourages congregations to strengthen our commitments to justice for farmworkers not just during harvest season, but throughout the year!  One of the ways we can do that is to join faith partners around the country like the National Farm Worker Ministry in urging Wendy’s to sign on to the Fair Food Program.  Consider boycotting Wendy’s until it does so.  Go to: http://nfwm.org/2016/07/nfwm-endorses-ciws-wendys-boycott/ for more background, and to find a letter you can deliver in person to your local Wendy’s store manager!!
