Supporting Farmworkers in Independence, Oregon

Essential Workers at an Independence Agricultural Facility Receive Masks, Information, and Lunch

Through key program, government, and community partnerships in the Independence community, we have supported efforts to keep local farmworkers and their families healthy and supported both at work and when they return to FHDC communities where many of them live. We have acknowledged, and continue to acknowledge, their hard work at farm sites through thank you lunches provided by Los Primos and distributed by Mano a Mano and FHDC resident services.
