This year has presented us with enormous threats to our grower and farmworker communities, from a global health pandemic to recent wildfires at the start of the harvest season. The Napa Valley Grapegrowers and the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation have risen to the challenge and provided critical leadership to protect agriculture and our community.
We have refocused our efforts from our traditional programs and events to those supporting the health & safety of our workforce, and continued advocacy for agriculture in this time of uncertainty.
Your support goes directly to:
Childcare support for farmworker families through harvest
Mobile COVID-19 testing units for vineyard crews
Distribution of essential N95 masks, cloth masks, and health and safety kits
Statewide bilingual media campaign to educate farmworkers and their families about COVID-19 safety protocols outside the workplace
Advocacy for disaster assistance related to smoke taint and property loss
Continued advocacy to protect agriculture and farm land in the Napa Valley
Expansion of our professional development and educational programs for farmworkers
And so much more
Your contributions keep the Napa Valley grower and farmworker communities healthy, safe and viable in this challenging time.
