Denver Fair Food set the table and invited King Soopers' parent company, Kroger, to join the CIW's Fair Food Program along with FL tomato growers and 11 other major retailers, as part of the CIW's call for Thanksgiving Week of Supermarket Action!
A new era of human rights and fair wages - for which farmworkers have been fighting for so long - is taking hold in Florida's tomato fields. Yet Kroger, the nation’s largest supermarket chain and owner of Denver-based King Soopers still refuses to adopt the Fair Food principles which would allow these changes to spread and thrive, despite that 11 other fast-food and grocery chains have already joined. It’s time for Kroger to come to the table and join the Fair Food Program!
Our community showed up to set the table with us and to speak to others about the CIW's Fair Food Program. Signatures were gathered on postcards that were hand-delivered to Kroger headquarters on Nov.21st, 2012.
