About America’s Farmworkers
"The hands that feed us are often invisible hands, hands of people who work in the shadows of a multibillion-dollar industry without enjoying its rewards.""The Human Cost of Food"
Knowledge is that which makes us understand...helps us comprehend...moves us to care...motivates us to change. In this section, we invite you to learn more about the people who harvest our food; farmworkers who we are all ultimately connected with, whose labor we all benefit from every day that we consume and share meals with our family, friends and colleagues. Learn more about who they are, where they come from, their struggles and challenges, their pride and culture and turn the page of ignorance to make those hands "visible" and thus sow the seeds for acceptance, gratitude and social change.
