Take Action

There are issues of Food & Faith around the world that need to be solved. Take Action here on a number of issues: 

Reading, Writing, and Raspberries

School is the perfect place for children to learn healthy eating habits. However, much of the food available to American children in school fails to met their nutritional needs. 

Start a campaign to get soda and junk food vending machines out of your local school. For more information, visit the Center for Food and Justice

Start a Farm to School program at your local school! Farm to School programs are operating in 8,846 schools and 41 states. For resources on starting a Farm to School program, visit www.farmtoschool.org

UMW and Farmworker Justice 

You can help hasten the day when all Florida farmworkers enjoy the same fundamental rights to a decent wage and fair working conditions. 

Write to McDonald's, Burger King, or Subway and urge them to commit their companies and their market power to making real the principles established in the Taco Bell agreement.
