Definition of Fair Food

Fair Food is produce grown and harvested on farms participating in the Fair Food Program — a unique partnership among farmers, farmworkers, and retail food companies — which ensures humane wages and working conditions for the workers who pick fruits and vegetables. Fair Food harnesses consumer demand to give farmworkers a voice in the decisions that affect their lives, and to eliminate the longstanding abuses that have plagued agriculture for generations. Look out for the Fair Food Label on tomatoes sold at select participating retailers, indicating they were picked by workers who were treated with dignity and respect, and who received the Fair Food Program's ‘penny-per-pound’ premium, paid out by participating retailers.
