Each step on this ladder is a foot high. That puts Angelica and Freddy up to 9 feet off the ground as they race to fill their 30-40lb bags of apples. They earn a piece rate averaging about $25 per 900 pound bin. #WeFeedYou

Efrain shared a selfie with the lemons he & his coworkers harvested in Fort Meyers, FL. Whether you enjoy a lemon slice in your water, topping your favorite dish or made into a juice, remember to thank farm workers who labor through extreme weather so you can enjoy. #WeFeedYou

Feli sent this pic of her brother, a farm worker in Hollister CA. She shares he is one of the hardest working persons she knows. Jose picks tomatoes by hand and is paid for each box he fills. When you enjoy a sliced tomato on your burger remember the work of Jose. #WeFeedYou

Rubi shared this pic of the yellow bell pepper harvest in CA. These peppers are picked and paid the same as the red & green ones, by piece rate. Which is: how many buckets one can pick in a day. #WeFeedYou

Meet Mickie. Mickie is spraying pesticides on the apple orchards in WA state. The pesticides are so dangerous to apply that he must wear special protective gear to avoid exposure. Stay safe Mickie. #WeFeedYou

Liz has been dealing with extreme heat and poor air quality all summer in Eastern WA as she has been laboring hard in the apples. She will get paid $23-$30 for each bin she fills with apples depending on the variety. #WeFeedYou

Camila shared this picture from Tulare CA. Row after row of grapevines that need to be tied so they form correctly and are able to support the weight of the fruit next harvest. When you enjoy grapes remember the skilled work of farm workers like Camila. #WeFeedYou

Roberto has harvested Washington State's apples for the last 8 years. He and his co-workers working long hard hours despite deteriating air quality because of wildfires. He asks the Senate to pass #FarmWorkerLegalization "so we can come out of the shadows." #WeAreHome #WeFeedYou

Not many of us are thinking about the Holidays yet but Felipe in Onalaska WA is. Felipe cares for hundreds of Christmas trees until they are ready to be chopped down and transported to cities nationwide. Thank you Felipe for the work you do. #WeFeedYou

Eva's hard work puts food on America's tables. She's proud of her work and feels she has earned #FarmWorkerLegalization. She wants to be able to work without fear of being deported and hopes to be able to visit her parents in Mexico. #WeAreHome #WeFeedYou

Eligio shared this photo of the sun as he worked the vegetable fields near Moss Landing CA. The cooler temps and higher humidity are making for longer workdays for farm workers like Eligio and his fellow farm workers. #WeFeedYou

Rosa has been a farm worker for over 30 years in Delano CA. The grape harvest may be slowing down for her but the heat is still in the 100’s in September in the San Joaquin Valley. Remember the work of farm workers like Rosa when you snack on some grapes. #WeFeedYou

Card check for farm workers trying to unionize #WeFeedYou

I’m truly devastated that @GavinNewsom vetoed the most important union organizing bill of the year. Denying Farmworkers the right to organize and join a union in the same manner we allow all public sector workers in CA to do so is abhorrent. Happy Hispanic Heritage Month. 👀

#WeFeedYou Farm workers need Visa, living wages and better working conditions. Groceries might cost a little bit more, but fair is fair.

Did farm workers let us down during a global pandemic? Fires? RESOUNDING NO. They came through, they always do—they put food on our tables and carried us through one crisis after another. We owe them. #WeFeedYou

Just one day into farm workers’ march for Gov. @GavinNewsom’s signature, he has vetoed #AB616. Workers are now marching towards the French Laundry, hoping to finally meet with the Governor.

Look how hard they work. Running, hustling while do grueling work. Why don’t we respect them? Why don’t we treat them better? #WeFeedYou
