Full Circle 02/23/18 Food Chains


Tonight, Full Circle comes to you ready to do our part in this important fund drive…and we do so with the eye opening film “Food Chains: The Revolution in America’s Fields” …

“Food Chains” is a documentary film that introduces us to the people that plant, cultivate and harvest the fruits and vegetables out in the field:  the farm workers of America.

The film also shows us how all that fresh produce gets from the fields to our local supermarkets and eventually onto our plates.

On tonight’s show…

…  We’ll learn about the extreme conditions out in the fields, through excerpts from the film “Food Chains:  The Revolution in America’s Fields”

…  Also, we’ll speak with director of “Food Chains,” Sanjay Rawal, and discuss the film’s’ importance and its message

…  And we’ll be connecting the dots of today’s immigration policies and the welfare of the workers who actually help provide us with healthy fruits and vegetables

…  Lastly… We will be asking for your support for KPFA and the Apprenticeship Program!

About First Voice Apprenticeship

First Voice Apprenticeship is an apprenticeship program at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley and is designed to provide comprehensive broadcast, technical, and administrative skills training in radio. First Voice also aims to build and strengthen community and empower our participants to find their voice and tell their stories. The First Voice program is based on community building, a collaborative work environment and passing on our skills and stories. We focus on bringing women and people of color into media and work in partnership with Pacifica community radio station KPFA and other community media outlets, both locally and nationally. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program is currently 18 months. Everyone is required to spend one business day each week working at KPFA, as well as two class nights. The dayshift is a three hour shift and apprentices do administrative and production tasks. The dayshift runs on an intergenerational group learning model, with each phase teaching the next, and integrates service to the station, skills acquired in classes, motivation and leadership.
