Is food a political and moral topic? Who gets to eat what, who makes it, and how it's delivered are affected by gender, race, class, ethnicity, and this nation's history. Food Workers Resist is a one-time event, in the style of the Moth Story Slam, to tell these stories. Proceeds go to IRCO, a humanitarian organization dedicated to serve immigrants and refugees. 

As the White House administration's attempts to silence, criminalize, and dehumanize members of our community, we give voice to untold stories of race, class, gender, and food.
