CLINTON — The Sisters of St. Francis present movies that matter monthly at The Canticle, 841 13th Ave. North, in Clinton. The movies are free and open to the public.
The November movie is "Food Chains" and will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 16.
"Food Chains" reveals the human cost in the food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce, like fast food restaurants and supermarkets.
Supermarkets earn $4 trillion globally. They have tremendous power over the agricultural system. Over the past three decades they have drained revenue from their supply chain, leaving farmworkers in poverty and forced to work under subhuman conditions.
In this exposé, an intrepid group of Florida farmworkers battles to defeat the global supermarket industry through its Fair Food program, which partners with growers and retailers to improve working conditions for farm laborers in the United States.
Their story is one of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed – to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain.
