Today we join the Hispanic Heritage Foundation in recognizing farmworkers across America as they continue to deliver essential services in the face of COVID-19. “It is with tremendous gratitude, pride, and admiration that we honor farmworkers with the Heroes Award this year,” said Antonio Tijerino, president, and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. “Every single time we take a bite of food, we should think about the importance of our farmworkers in our lives, especially during the COVID-19 crisis as they put themselves and their families at risk to nobly nourish our families.  Their service is nothing short of heroic.” Learn how farmworkers have endured through the pandemic and continue to do what you can to protect our essential workers through social distancing, proper mask procedures, and regular hand washing.
