Growing the Table Strengthens Connections in Salinas Farmworker Communities

Growing the Table, a program that delivers locally grown food to food-insecure families throughout the Central Coast, has donated more than 138,000 pounds of organic produce to Monterey Bay and Salinas families. One of the biggest objectives of the pilot program is ensuring that farmworkers are among the first to access the food they grow. “This needs to be an example and a model of what we need to do to eliminate all food deserts in the State of California,” said Assembly member Robert Rivas (D-Salinas).
