Where:  This is an online event for everyone to participate in. There is no cost. Organizations are encouraged to share social media content, or plan in-person events to raise awareness and/or celebrate farmworkers.

Who:  Equitable Food Initiative, the workforce development and certification organization that partners with growers, farmworkers, retailers and consumer advocacy groups, is celebrating National Farmworker Awareness Week by encouraging growers, agricultural associations, state agriculture agencies, food companies, retailers and consumers to share messages honoring the farmworkers that make it possible for Americans to have access to high-quality, fresh and safer food every day of the year.
