First Farm Worker Resource Fair held in Santa Maria

Local farm workers were invited to a community resource event in Santa Maria Tuesday.

Several City and County organizations were invited to the Farm Worker Resource Fair.

Information was given out about employment, career and training opportunities, social service resources, safety and agricultural worker rights, and educational programs.

Grace Schoch-Manzano with the Employment Development Department says, "One of the things that we found going out to the community and providing services to the migrant season farm worker is a lot of the times they are not aware of how many resources they have, and so there are some that have been put together over the years for just one thing like health and employment."

This is the first year for this event.
