SAVE THE DATE: Boycott Wendy’s Week of Action, November 15-21!

Students and community members in San Francisco at a rally in front of DoorDash’s headquarters on October 15 demand DoorDash stop doing business with Wendy’s until the company joins the Fair Food Program.

Time to get creative: Get ready to participate in a series of five, 1-minute virtual actions in support of the Wendy’s Boycott during next month’s national Week of Action!

PLUS: San Francisco students and community members pay a visit to DoorDash headquarters to demand the company drop Wendy’s as a business partner and #DeliverWithDignity! 

Recent news of yet another brutal forced labor case in agriculture, and the growing evidence of the Fair Food Program’s unparalleled power, have demonstrated that it is both necessary and possible to radically transform farm labor conditions in the U.S. agricultural industry.  Yet despite the many compelling reasons driving the continued expansion of the leading social responsibility program in the food industry today, Wendy’s unconscionably refuses to join the Fair Food Program, leaving farmworkers in its supply chain vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.  But Wendy’s stubborn refusal to step up to the gold standard for human rights protection has not deterred the Fair Food Nation from its mission to expand the FFP’s protections to farmworkers in the hamburger giant’s supply chain.  And over the years, each action, big or small, virtual or in-person, has brought us closer to bringing Wendy’s into the Fair Food fold.

Which brings us to next month’s big Boycott Wendy’s Week of Action!

Mark your calendars: From November 15-21, we will be sending instructions directly to your inbox each day for quick, virtual actions designed to increase the pressure on all fronts of the Wendy’s Boycott.  Make sure to sign up for our mailing list today to receive details of the virtual actions.  And if you’re interested in planning an in-person protest outside your location Wendy’s, be sure to reach out to for resources and support on how to make it happen! 

“DoorDash: Stand with Farmworkers and Deliver With Dignity!” 

As part of CIW’s virtual tour of San Francisco last week, Bay Area Fair Food allies took to the streets to demand DoorDash make a commitment to delivering food with dignity and stop doing business with Wendy’s until the fast-food company joins the Fair Food Program.  The rally came after a jam-packed week of Fair Food events, organized by Student Environmental Resource Center at UC Berkeley, including a Food Chains screening, class presentations, and an art-build! 

Students, artists and and community members from across the Bay Area, joined by San Francisco’s Brass Liberation Orchestra, marched with freshly-painted banners directly to DoorDash’s headquarters urging CEO Tony Xu to meet with farmworker leaders of the CIW to learn more about the Fair Food Program and Wendy’s refusal to join the award-winning human rights program. The group educated hundreds of passersby about the Deliver With Dignity Campaign and DoorDash’s responsibility to do right by the women and men who have been sustaining our country’s food supply throughout the pandemic.

DoorDash can expect even more action in the months ahead, as the Deliver With Dignity Campaign solidifies in the Bay Area and neighborhoods all across the country!
