We made this short film in Immokalee Florida (where 1/3 of the tomatoes in our grocery stores are grown). We spent a day with Lupe Gonzalo, a tomato picker and organizer for CIW (Coalition of Immokalee Workers). The Coalition is fighting to change the way our country's tomato laborers are treated, as well as raise their wages by implementing a 1 penny per pound increase of picked tomatoes. Many companies (McDonalds) are working with CIW, but some are holding out (Publix, Chipotle). Please watch and share this short film about Lupe's life. Most likely, there is a wonderful person just like her picking the tomatos you buy at the grocery store. theperennialplate.com
