- Bridging Opportunities to Farmworkers
Farmworkers touch our lives every day by picking the fruit and vegetables that end up on our plates at every meal. Ironically, many farmworkers suffer from malnutrition and food scarcity issues due to lack of work and transportation and rural isolation. Farmworkers are also frequently exposed to exploitative situations, at work and at home, that deny the right to basic safety and dignity.
NC FIELD is a grassroots 501(c)3 organization that serves as an advocate for farmworkers and their families in eastern North Carolina, assisting them to gain access to services and information not readily available.
Additionally, we offer farmworkers opportunities and education that strengthen their community and foster self-sufficiency.
