Food Worker Hero: Constantine, Street Food Vendor

Everyday Heroes

Millions of food workers around the world struggle to make a living each day. In the U.S. alone, nearly 20 million people work in the food system, growing, processing, transporting, serving, cooking, & selling the food that we eat each day. The food system is the largest employer in the U.S., and yet the majority of frontline food workers earn poverty wages. In the U.S., almost ironically, a third of food workers suffer from food insecurity and hunger.

We depend on these workers for the food on our tables. Check out these Food Chain Workers Alliance videos of some everyday food worker heroes, like Constantine, a street food vendor and a leader of the Street Vendor Project.
