Manos Latinas’ project, Promoviendo Comida Saludable y Aumentando Conciencia en la Comunidad Latina (Raising Awareness & Promoting Healthy Eating in the Latino Community), will engage rural Latino women and their families, through participatory trainings and hands-on farming, on the health benefits of eating wholesome, chemical-free food and the health risks of unhealthy diets. Trainings will discuss the negative health impacts of pesticide exposure on workers, communities and the benefits of chemical-free farming; and will also provide opportunities for community ownership of production of food.
