Today is day one of the “Fast for Fair Food”. My thoughts and warm wishes are going out to my friend and colleague Bob St. Peter who is down in Lakeland, Florida fasting in front of Publix Grocery Store Headquarters. Publix is the last hold out resisting the CIW’s request for a small increase in the wages paid agricultural workers. Bob along with 150 other participants in the fast from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. will be outside the Publix headquarters until this issue is resolved. Here is a good article about the whole thing on the Food for Maine’s Future website Saving Seeds.
