The Color of Food

Applied Research Center


This report brief is intended to support the collaborative efforts of advocates and researchers who are working diligently to bring attention to the invisible labor that populate the food supply chain. The Color of Food explores the universe of workers that populate the food chain, from food’s inception as seed to when it reaches our plates at home or in restaurants. This mapping of the race, class and gender of food workers will be a baseline from which the food justice movement can dream of a new supply chain, one that sustains and nourishes its labor, as well as its consumers.
