Despite their status as essential workers who play a vital role in upholding our food system, farmworkers face a variety of challenges including occupational health hazards and gender inequality within the industry. Read our latest blog for more info: farmtoschool.org/news-and-artic…
The food that makes its way to our grocery stores, markets, and tables are planted and harvested by farmworkers who are routinely overworked and underpaid.
Happy National Farmworker Awareness Week! Join us as we celebrate the contributions of farmworkers within the United States. MHP Salud shares that there are three million farmworkers in the United States — many of whom are people of color.

Right now, 90% of schools across our country are relying on child nutrition waivers to feed their students. We must extend these waivers so our children have the nutrition they need to learn.
