Food Empowerment Project (F.E.P.) is organizing a Bay Area school supply drive for the children of farm workers from Monday, July 11, through Monday, July 25.
The farm workers who pick our food are victims of an unjust system that benefits corporations over workers, profit over people, and greed over families. These workers strive to get by on very little income, and parents and grandparents often cannot afford to buy their children the school supplies they need.
While F.E.P. works in other ways to challenge this system, we want to do our best to give farm workers the support they deserve.
Thank YOU for your support of families who work so hard helping to put the food on our tables.
