Thu Jun 5 2014 (Updated 06/13/14) Central Coast Farmworker Appreciation and Father's Day Celebration
Farmworker Appreciation Day in Salinas AshEl writes, "The movement to create healthy communities begins with appreciation. We want to create a day where we not only express gratitude to the hardworking people who put food on our plates, but also educate the community about the connections between food, climate change, and health. The goal of the day is to bring together youth, farmworkers, community leaders, local organizations, businesses, and public officials to celebrate farmworkers, while creating a platform for the Central Coast community to raise their voices around issues that support the environmental, economic, and physical health of the Central Coast region, the farmworkers, and their community.

"There will be live music, free food, healthy cooking demonstrations, education and speakers from community based organizations, and lots of love, goods, and support for farmworkers!

The event will be held on Sunday, June 15, Father’s Day, at Closter Park in Salinas, from 11-3pm.
