National Supermarket Week of Action a wrap


Fair Food message sent loud and clear!

In hundreds of supermarkets from Baltimore to the Bay Area, Fair Food activists gave their local grocers a special message this Thanksgiving week: Now is the time to support human rights in Florida’s fields!

Supermarket chains from Trader Joe’s to Giant, Stop and Shop, Walmart, Winn Dixie, and (of course) Publix were visited this past week by CIW allies who turned their Thanksgiving shoping into a teachable moment by dropping off a copy of the CIW’s “manager’s letter” to their local grocery store manager.

Thanks to everyone who made the week of action such a success. To get a better idea of the fun, click here for a few pictures from “shop and drops” from across the country. And, of course, even though supermarket week is over, don’t let that stop you from getting in on the action — download the manager’s letter any time you’d like and visit for a moment with your supermarket manager next time you shop for groceries!
