Whole Foods: Source Your Foods Where Workers Make At Least Minimum Wage!

  • By: Kristi Arnold
  • Target: Whole Foods CEOs John Mackey and Walter E Robb IV

Whole Foods must make sure their food is sourced from places where workers are paid at least minimum wage! 
Colorado Corrections Industries has inmates milk a thousand goats twice per day and then send them milk on to cheese-makers at Haystack Mountain. The cheese is later sold by Whole Foods.

The program employs 2,000 prisoners at 17 facilities overall; inmates also breed and pack tilapia for Arrowhead Fisheries, which also sells their products at Whole Foods.

Whole Foods shouldn't source its products from companies that don't follow standard ethical labor practices. Tell Whole Foods to source their products elsewhere or ask these companies to end their connection with prison labor.

Dear Sirs,


We the undersigned ask that you discontinue sourcing products that use prison labor. Whole Foods must make sure their food is sourced from places where workers are paid at least minimum wage!
