It hasn’t been all work and no play here in Immokalee, we have had quite a lot of palletas, played a lot of games, and painting art projects at the CIW seems like more fun than work.
Last night, Horace needed to get a work out in, so he invited some of the group to join him. While they were at the park, they made a friend who joined them in the work out…. while the rest of the group went to get ice cream (talk about extremes!)
Yesterday, we were also able to have a presentation from the Fair Food Standards Council. They are the enforcement arm of the Fair Food Program. Think of them as the lawyers and accountants who make sure the Workers Code of Conduct is enforced and everyone is getting paid as they should. Literally, half of their staff joined us for a lunchtime presentation where they explained how audits and investigations are conducted. It offered additional perspective on the scope of the fair food program.
