Just Food? Forum on Labor Across the Food System

April 1, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm

Join the Harvard Law School Food Law Society and the Harvard Food Literacy Project for a conference on labor in our food system. This conference will explore the issues most relevant to those who grow, harvest, prepare, and serve our food. Participants will learn from a diverse group of food system workers, advocates, scholars, practitioners and other authorities, who will speak about their work on topics including agricultural worker rights, worker compensation in the restaurant industry, regulatory responses, and alternative ownership and operating models. Keynotes speakers include Sheila R. Maddali on discriminatory labor practices and low wages in the restaurant industry and Steve Hitov and Fabiola Mieres on the Coalition of Immokalee Workers Fair Food Program. Register now for early bird rates. Early bird rates expire on March 1, 2017.
