Food For Farmworkers

Salinas Valley
Food for Farmworkers challenges the economic and locational barriers that typically prevent agricultural food desert communities from accessing healthy food. We purchase surplus produce at below market price from farmers in Salinas Valley and then sell the low priced produce to food insecure farmworker communities via a mobile market operation. Food for Farmworkers synergistically reduces food waste, thus decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, feeds farmworkers and their families healthy food, compensates farmers for their surplus produce, and engages communities in healthy eating.
