Who Feeds Us?

Who Feeds Us? is a new series from Eat. Drink. Better. which according to the site attempts “to investigate the lives of our farm workers. Who picks our crops and packages our meals and how are they treated in our name? What do we implicitly sanction as we swipe our debit cards through the checkout line?” The first installment considers women in the field including Olivia Tamayo, “who made history last week when she became the first female migrant worker to successfully bring a sexual harrassment suit against her employer to a federal jury.”

    This is an oft-overlooked part of ethical eathing. It is odd that we think about the effects of our food choices on the environment and on the rights of animals much more often than its effects on people. Thanks for the link to the Tamayo story. I found it moving.
