Here's how to Fast from Fast Food

As workers prepare for the major risks calling for $15 an hour and a union on April 15, we're giving up fast food for 40-days to recognize workers' great sacrifice in the struggle against injustice and inequality.

In the spirit of the Lent, we will fast from eating at any of the major fast food chains (McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, Subway, KFC). We'll pray daily for fast food workers and an end to income inequality. We'll give generously our time and resources to organizations supporting the workers who are organizing.

What to do during the fast

  • Post a picture of yourself on Facebook with a sign: “I’m Fasting from Fast Food in solidarity with workers.” -> Download the sign in the resource center.
  • Adopt a fast food restaurant near your congregation or school. Get to know the workers.
  • Give workers "Thank You" cards. -> Download the cards in the resource center
