Chocolate is enjoyed by people all over the world, and its sale and consumption is even more prevalent during holidays.

About two-thirds of the world’s cocoa comes from plantations in West Africa. Unfortunately, despite pledges to the contrary from the world’s leading chocolate providers, much of the chocolate you buy today starts with child labor.

Watch a documentary detailing conditions under which chocolate is produced, and follow the route from plantation to chocolate bar. Lunch will be served, and guests are welcome to bring their own food.
