Food is fundamental to our lives, but the political economy of food—how it’s produced, distributed, and consumed—is often invisible. In recent years, farmworkers, food workers, environmentalists, and community activists have joined together to understand how food systems structure our lives, and what we can do to change them. The tomato fields of South Florida have been a seedbed for the emerging food justice movement.
