Thank You Jesus

By: Mando Rayo

Let’s explore the original purveyors and growers of our foods and honor the hard work of Migrant Farmworkers. Thank you Jesus…De Nada says the migrant farmworker. Going beyond the internet meme, let’s not only explore where our food comes from but who cultivates it, picks it and gets it to local grocery stores and restaurants. The farm-to-market movement has exponentially grown in the U.S. but when it comes to taquerias and Latino farmers, are they included in the make-up and do they benefit from the farm-to-market economy? In Texas, migrant farmworkers have been part of the farming community since the 1950s and while they may go unnoticed, we’ll talk to some of these unsung heroes who are feeding the people of Tejas though farming and local taquerias. Guests include Elizabeth Marquez and Maria Elena from La Union Del Pueblo Entero (LUPE) as well as Norma Flores López from Justice for Migrant Women.
