Farm Workers and Food Insecurity

October 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

You are invited to participate in a discussion about the lives of migrant workers in Vermont. The evening will be led by author and UVM professor Teresa Mares, sponsored by Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op, and held at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalist Church on Charles Avenue in Middlebury on Thursday, October 17, 6:30-8 pm.

Teresa Mares, Ph.D, is an Anthropology professor at the University of Vermont. In her new book, Life on the Other Border: Farmworkers and Food Justice in Vermont, she explores the vulnerability and food insecurity experienced by migrant farm workers in our state, and analyzes the inequities, fear and invisibility experienced by those who sustain our dairy industry. She also speaks to their humanity and resilience, and their actions to remain connected to the foods that provide a link to their families and familiar tables south of the border.

Parking at the church is limited – please park in the high school lot across the street.
