Help us to raise awareness about the sobering truth of child migrant workers! Join us this Friday for a screening and discussion about the plight of children who work in America’s agricultural industry.
The film “The Harvest”/”La Cosecha” profiles three young children who are taken from school to work as migrant farm workers. The film profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest.
This event will bring together Slow Food Oberlin, the Ecolympics and Bon Appetit dining service to begin a meaningful dialogue about farmworker’s rights, a cause that Bon Apetit supports by not buying products from companies that exhort child labor. We can make ethical choices about the foods we eat.

Hope to see you all there!
