North Carolina

NC AgrAbility met with the NC Farmworker Health Program to continue the collaborative work in assisting farmworkers in North Carolina. North Carolina is home to roughly 150,000 farmworkers and 28,000 poultry workers and their families. The vast majority of the fruits and vegetables and nearly all the poultry people eat are picked or processed by hand. However, those who feed others through their hard work are often among the worst paid and least protected workers in North Carolina.
