Speak up for poultry workers

Chicken is America’s most popular meat—but the jobs of workers who process it are unnecessarily demanding. Tell Big Poultry to stop putting workers' lives on the line.

How can we take action against hunger?

If you’ve eaten, shopped, dined out, cooked, or farmed in the last few years, you might have gotten a glimpse of what’s wrong with our food system:

  • Billions of tons of food go to waste while about one in nine people on Earth goes hungry.
  • Staple crops, from corn and wheat to avocados, are threatened by climate change.
  • The people who produce our food—family farmers and workers—face poverty and unjust working conditions, while big companies see huge profits.
  • Critical food aid has been cut to places like war-torn Syria.

It’s enough to make you lose your appetite.

But there is something we can do. People struggling with hunger don’t exist in a vacuum. Harvests don’t fail in isolation. We’re all interconnected—through the food we eat, the products we buy, and the issues we care about it. People like us can make change, but only if we make our voices heard.

Are you ready to speak up? It’s time. Together, we #WillFightForFood. Here’s how to join us.

“We have never seen two years without rain in our lifetime,” says a man named Mohammed, who used to have 400 sheep and goats and now has only 15 left. “We are in a dangerous situation—even people. If the drought continues like this, people will die.”
