The Food Almanac 2019: Immigration in the Food Chainhosted by
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
“In 2019, Slow Food New York City – inspired by the “Farmers’ Almanac” – is sponsoring the 9th Annual Food Almanac, a singular opportunity for food-active individuals to be informed and to consider food and farming policy challenges, opportunities, and action in the New Year. This year, we’ve chosen to put a spin on tradition and focus specifically on immigration labor in the food chain.
By opening up a space to discuss immigration issues and food policy, we hope to improve understanding of the scope of immigrant labor in our food system, as well as the impact that poor food/ag policy, labor policy, and other discriminatory policies have had on immigrants and resultantly, our food system.”
