Full Circle 9-18-15 Food Chains Fund Drive

Full Circle steps into the fall fund drive and we do so with a very eye opening film “Food Chains”.  “Food Chains” takes us directly to where a lot of the fresh fruits and vegetables we eat really come from. The film also shows us how all that fresh produce gets from the fields to our local supermarkets and onto our plates.

Furthermore, ‘Food Chains’ also documents the extreme conditions that farm workers, whose skill it is to actually do the work of picking and harvesting the crops, are required to work under…and the reasons those conditions are created, such as the supermarkets and the fast food chains setting the price of produce.. a price that keeps the workers in the fields living below the poverty line….so on tonight’s show we’ll feature excerpts from the film “Food Chains”, also we’ll speak with director Sanjay Rawal and discuss the film’s’ importance and it’s message.

“Food Chains” premiered at  the 2014 Berlin film festival and screened at the Tribeca film festival and Guadalajara film festival. “Food Chains” will be released nationwide November 21st. the film’s executive producers include Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser.
