Summary

In Immokalee, Florida, migrant farmworkers pick fruits and vegetables that are sold to large US food wholesalers. However, their working conditions are shown to be less than favorable. As a result, they form the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) to raise awareness and improve their circumstances. Specifically, they go on a hunger strike to pressure Publix, a Florida-based food wholesaler, to pay them one penny more per pound of tomato. Meanwhile, the documentary also shows farmworkers in the vineyards of the Napa Valley.

Critical reception

In a review for The Hollywood Reporter, Frank Scheck suggested not much had changed since Harvest of Shame, a 1960 documentary about the same topic. He concluded that Food Chains was 'simultaneously inspirational and deeply depressing.' Writing for the San Francisco Chronicle, Tara Duggan added that there were 'many chilling moments' in the documentary. In The New York Daily News, Elizabeth Weitzman called the documentary 'unsettling,' concluding 'you will certainly leave the theater more enlightened than when you arrived.'. Jeannette Catsoulis of the New York Times called the film 'rousing' and 'emphatic and empathetic.'.
