Not sure what to get your family and friends this holiday season?  Tired of the same old holiday gift ideas?  Well, look no further! 

This year, you can do it all: Help spread the word about the award-winning Fair Food Program by getting beautiful, informative merchandise out into the world, and bring a smile to the face of your best friend, parent, child, or co-worker with a thoughtful, original gift idea.  And the best thing of all?  You’re supporting farmworkers’ fundamental human rights with every purchase you make, because part of the proceeds from the holiday gift sales go to the expansion of the Fair Food Program’s groundbreaking protections!

Workers in South Carolina attend a Know Your Rights education session on a Fair Food Program farm before heading into the fields this past summer. Your donations help support the Program’s worker-to-worker education, 24-hour complaint line, and in-depth audits that have helped transform the tomato industry and measurably improve tens of thousands of workers’ lives.
Fair Food Program Holiday E-Cards: This year’s gifts are truly special.  First up, we are launching a creative set of Fair Food-themed holiday e-cards that you can get FREE when you make a Sustaining donation to the Fair Food Program in the name of a family member or friend.  Whether it’s to support the ongoing Wendy’s Boycott or to sustain the day-to-day hard work of educating workers and monitoring workers’ rights in the fields, you can make a donation to the Fair Food Program and send a special card to let your loved one know that you made a donation in his or her honor.  What better gift for the lover of human rights on your holiday list!
Great new book on the Fair Food Program:  Also new this year, we are proud to feature — hot off the press — the most complete history and analysis of the CIW’s ground breaking work to date: I am not a tractor! How Florida Farmworkers Took on the Fast Food Giants and Won, by the Dean of the Pardee RAND Graduate School, Susan Marquis. 
After years of dedicated research, including extensive access to CIW staff and trips into the fields with Fair Food Standards Council auditors, Professor Marquis captures the long and beautiful trajectory of the Fair Food Movement and documents the emergence of the Worker-driven Social Responsibility model, a breakthrough in human rights protections that is inspiring low-wage workers worldwide today.  And beyond being the most informative text on the CIW’s history and unique approach to social change, it’s a great read, too.  In the words of Fast Food Nation author Eric Schlosser: 

“I Am Not A Tractor! explores what today’s corporate giants fear the most: democracy. Marquis tells the extraordinary story of how some of the poorest people in America overcame some of the most powerful to obtain justice.  If immigrant farm workers in Florida can do it, so can other workers throughout the United State—and this fine book shows how.

And here’s the kicker: Professor Marquis‘ standard practice is to donate a portion of her royalties to the organization studied — so your book purchase will not only give you or your loved ones unprecedented insight into what has been called “one of the great human rights success stories of our day” in the Washington Post, but also assist in the expansion of Fair Food Program!  

Fair Food Posters and T-shirts: Finally, we have the ever-popular Fair Food t-shirts and posters!  The CIW receives a small donation with every purchase so, just as with the e-cards and Professor Marquis’ book, you can rest easy knowing that your resources are going to help grow the Fair Food movement.

This season, give the gift that gives back: Help us build a dignified, humane environment in the fields where YOUR food is picked every day.  Please share the Fair Food Holiday Gift Guide far and wide from now through January, and help make a difference for the women, men and children who put food on our holiday tables.
