The Food Chain Workers Alliance focuses on three areas of work in order to improve the lives and communities of food system workers and their families and to participate in the movement for a more sustainable food system. Each member organization participates in at least one of the following program committees:

1.    Growth & Learning

Worker solidarity and leadership among workers all along the food chain is key to winning improvements in the workplace. This committee plans the FCWA’s annual worker leaders summit, the regional Justice in the Food Chain training series, and develops other ways that FCWA members can learn from each other.

2.     Campaigns & Messages

This committee helps to build public support for our members’ organizing campaigns and the principal campaign of the Alliance, which is focused on the Good Food Purchasing Program. The committee also develops message, materials, and social media tools to support those campaigns. Click here to read more about our Campaigns & Messages work.

3.    Movement Building

The Alliance believes that to achieve our vision of the future, we need to build broad and deep social movements. We can’t do this work alone. We therefore have co-founded and play leadership roles in a number of national formations. Read more about our movement-building work here.
