Last month we told you that Food Chains, the powerful new documentary about farmworker exploitation and the CIW’s Campaign for Fair Food, had been nominated for the prestigious James Beard Award, the food world’s top award, also known as the “Oscars of Food.”  

Well, last week at a gala ceremony in New York City, it became official: Food Chains won the 2015 James Beard Award for Documentary Film!  Author and fellow James Beard Award winner Barry Estabrook was on hand to receive the award on behalf of the film crew.

Congratulations go out to all the Food Chains crew, and especially to Sanjay Rawal, Smriti Keshari, Forest Woodward, Erin Barnett and Carl Banks, whose tireless work produced a truly timeless film.

If you haven’t seen Food Chains yet, what in the world are you waiting for?  Go see it now on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play or any number of digital options you can find here.
