"Do The Right Thing" tour comes to Quincy Stop & Shop

by Karen Methot


Below: scenes from last year's march on Stop & Shop in Boston. The Campaign for Fair Food is returning to familiar ground this week, as workers from Immokalee and their allies from student and faith communities head north to keep the heat on supermarket chains Stop & Shop and Giant and food movement darling Chipotle for their refusal to partner with farmworkers and support the CIW's Fair Food Program. The campaign's planned stop in Massachusetts is in Quincy. See details below, and download a flyer here.

Thursday, April 12, at 12:00pm
