Take a fresh approach
The exploitation of  farm pickers who supply supermarkets is not surprising given  the pressure of unrealistic prices  on suppliers by the major supermarkets. These practices  destroy ethical farmers or endanger young labourers. We, as customers, have the power to make a decision to do our fresh-food shopping elsewhere. Farmers and city markets, green grocers and vegetable-box deliveries  are  alternatives to shopping for produce at supermarkets.  Why not  walk with the children to get  milk and bread locally or make a weekend trip to markets? With a little planning, we can make choices that are ethical, healthy, fun and benefit the community.
