Farmworker Appreciation Day
August 8 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Farmworker Appreciation Day annual picnic is coordinated by the UMOS National Farmworker Jobs Program staff. “This picnic is our small way of showing appreciation for their efforts in putting food on our tables,” states Lupe Martinez, President/CEO, UMOS.
Food, exhibits, dancers, children’s games, and music were provided free of charge. Much of the food was donated by area farmers that employ migrant workers. Approximately four-hundred attended the picnic.
