VIDEO: Wendy’s slammed with dozens of “Boycott the Fast Food Grinch” videos for the holidays!


“You’re a scoundrel, #FastFoodGrinch…”

Earlier this month, the Student/Farmworker Alliance network put out a special call to action in the Wendy’s Boycott asking students and young people to send in videos declaring Wendy’s the official Fast Food Grinch of 2016!  Of course, the Fair Food Nation took up the holiday challenge, with scores of videos pouring in from Idaho and Wisconsin to New York and Florida — even from Guatemala! — affirming their commitment to boycott Wendy’s until the Fast Food Grinch grows a full-sized heart and joins farmworkers at the table.  

We were absolutely blown away by the remarkable creativity and talent reflected in the videos that flooded SFA’s Facebook page.  Scores of students — including SFAers at campuses organizing to “Boot the Braids”, such as Ohio State University, University of Texas-Austin and University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill — and community allies contributed to the impressive series of Grinch-themed theater skits, ultimatums, monologues and remixes.

Here are the top three highlights (hard as it was to pick only three!) — though make sure to check out even more “Boycott the Fast Food Grinch” videos over at the Student/Farmworker Alliance website!

BONUS:  In addition to talented allies across the country, Immokalee’s CIW staff made their own video for Wendy’s the Grinch this holiday season…
