Behind every salad is a story. But who is responsible for all the work that goes into putting food on our tables?

Exhibited from April 6th, 2018 – July 22nd, 2018.

Behind every salad is a story.

From almonds and brussel sprouts to grapes and sugar beets, California produces and distributes nearly half of the fruits, nuts, and vegetables in the country. But who is responsible for all the work that goes into putting food on our tables?

This exhibition explores the systemic injustice of food production through the stories of migrant farm workers in California. Victor Cartagena worked with individuals from the United Farm Workers (UFW) in Salinas to uncover some of the stories of labor and bureaucracy behind the food we consume each day.
