Farmworker Caravan: San Jose to Salinas // Donations are needed!

 

This Fourth of July weekend, let’s thank the farmworker families for helping to feed America by providing them with essential household supplies and children’s Summer toys.

There are 1600 kids in this community!

Did you know that Salinas Valley, known as the “Salad Bowl of the World”, provides roughly 70% of lettuce grown in the USA.

Let’s pack up your car with donations [see address below] from family & friends, then we will meet-up in San Jose and caravan in individual cars to Salinas, California.

About:

The Farmworker Caravan takes place over two days.

This first day is the Donation Drop-off that is open to the public to drop off non-perishable foods, essential household goods, face masks and PPE. We use a safe contact-less system. The donation drop is for people who are not participating in the caravan.

The second day the Farmworker Caravan consists of cars filled with donations that participants have collected. We meet up in the morning in San Jose, CA to drive to a destination where the goods are dropped of at a partner location where they will sort and distribute to the farmworkers.

Only registered guests and vehicles may participate in the caravan.
