Historically, local Hispanic families travel many miles to find work and every year they migrate. They follow the harvest with hope that they will be able to bring home enough money to pay their property taxes, add a room to their home, buy a vehicle, buy clothes for their children for school, etc. These economically disadvantaged families struggle to make ends meet and their only hope is that their children go on to college so that they, their children, do not continue in the same cycle of poverty. This project is meant to open the public’s eyes to the heartfelt truth that children, as young as seven years of age, pick the very fruits and vegetables that we put on our tables every day.
