Strengthening Community, Sustaining Agriculture, Supporting Farmworkers

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.
