Mark your calendars for Sunday, May 21, 2023, as we come together to honor the incredible farm workers who tirelessly keep food on our tables. The Day of the Farm Worker event will take place from 11:00am to 4:00pm at Santa Maria High School, located at 901 S Broadway, Santa Maria. It’s a day you won’t want to miss!
One of the highlights of this special event is the opportunity to receive FREE health screenings. Take advantage of COVID-19 vaccinations, oral health checks, blood pressure and glucose checks, and even speak with providers to get answers to your health-related questions. Your well-being matters, and we want to ensure you have access to the necessary resources.

In addition to the health screenings, the FREE Resource Fair will allow families to gather information on education, nutrition, and mental health. You can also receive guidance on legal help and labor rights. We believe knowledge is power, and we want to empower you and your family to lead healthy and prosperous lives. Attend educational presentations by Casa Pacifica on ‘Coping Skills for Children & Parenting Tips” along with ‘What to Expect When Choosing a Career in Education’ from Educators of Color Club – Cal Poly.
But let’s not forget about the little ones! There will also be plenty of activities for kids throughout the day. Kids can enjoy games, coloring activities, face painting, free children’s books and other activities to keep them entertained and engaged throughout the day. It’s a family-friendly event that offers something for everyone.
