Creating a Just Food System

Learn more about a just restaurant food system from production to consumption. Visit the following websites:

We are people who love food and want a just food system. We support great restaurants that treat people and the environment well throughout the food system, and raise our voices on policies that support those practices. We are gathering for quality food and fair wages and working conditions.

With over 20 million workers nationwide, the US food industry is one of the largest and fastest growing sectors of our economy. Within it, the restaurant industry is the largest segment – employing over 10 million workers – but unfortunately is also the lowest-paying employer in America.

We are on the cusp of creating real change for food workers and the food system in America; legislators across America are currently considering proposals to raise the minimum wage and provide paid sick days, and to regulate food companies, forcing them to provide healthier, more environmentally-sustainable food.

All of us- workers, employers, and eaters – have a stake in encouraging a sustainable food system and thriving local economies. By raising the wage and benefits floor, millions of workers across the food chain will have enough to spend on the basics, and boost the economy in the process by circulating more money in local economies.
