We don’t know all the challenges that lie ahead but we do know no matter what that we’re in this together.

Our covid response

Our California Farmworkers Foundation has aided Farmworkers throughout the Central Valley since the beginning of May 2020 with 80,000 surgical masks. Ensuring our Farmworkers safety is essential, and we are committing to deliver an additional 200,000 surgical masks to our essential workers during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Additionally, we are looking to combat food insufficiency in farm-working communities, as well as providing virtual medical consultations for Farmworkers who suffer from chronic diseases and respiratory illnesses. Surveying our Farmworkers on the impact of the Coronavirus will allow our foundation to implement public health campaigns in communities, which will allow us to share educational materials.

We will continue to partner with agricultural companies throughout California to provide on-site education and awareness of the Coronavirus. We see you we love you and we are so thankful for you. Your California Farmworker Foundation invites you to take-action, we are here to help guide you through this unprecedented pandemic. This is the time for love not fear.

COVID 19 Farmworker Survey

COVID-19 continues to affect the daily lives of Farmworkers and their families. CFF continues to monitor the crises on the ground by conducting surveys to learn more about the effects of COVID-19 and to implement programs and services that directly impact the lives of Farmworkers. In early June, CFF concluded it's 3rd survey in the following counties: Fresno, Madera, and Tulare. A key finding of the survey was that close to 53% of Farmworkers are afraid to go to the Doctor. Also worth noting, close to 90% of Farmworkers surveyed wrote that they had received COVID-19 information from their employer. For more information on the survey, please click on the following link:
