Review for Farmworker Association of Florida Inc. (FWAF), Apopka, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

People who do the vitally important work of planting and picking our food should have the best of pay and working conditions. Instead, they suffer from poverty wages and multiple health issues due to pesticide exposure, physical over-exertion, cruel and exploitative management, etc. Several years ago, I became aware of the Farmworker Association of Florida (FWAF). It would be difficult to find an organization with a more dedicated and committed staff and leadership than FWAF. They work tirelessly to improve the conditions of the people who make it possible for the rest of us to live. Anyone looking for a worthy organiztion to donate money and/or time to should definitely give to FWAF. You can be assured it will go to good use! Also, I highly recommend that everyone become more familiar with the people who make it possible for us to sustain ourselves with the vitamins and minerals in the fruits and vegetables we consume. I have learned a lot by attending workshops, including the tour of Lake Apopka conducted by FWAF, and I urge others to do the same.
