This September DC Fair Food traveled to the epicenter of the Fair Food Movement to participate in the Student/Farmworker Alliance’s annual strategy retreat, the Encuentro.
Brittany Urse, a DC Fair Food member and former SFA Steering Committee Member, had this to say about the experience:
The 2014 Encuentro was a great opportunity for me to reengage in the Campaign for Fair Food. Beyond connecting with the very passionate and inspiring young leaders of SFA, I am grateful for being to able to return to Immokalee for the first time in a few years, hear more about the Fair Foods Standards Council and the changes that our occurring now, and learn more about the Boot the Braids campaign. I am excited to bring this energy back to DC Fair Food and can’t wait to see Food Chains, Sanjay Rawal’s documentary featuring the CIW, screened in our community.
