"Honoring the Hands" Calendar for Migrant Farm Workers

Un-Gift Guide 2008

This calendar is more a work of art than a place to pencil in doctor's appointments, but it's a beautiful way to help raise awareness for health care for migrant farm workers. Every month is a different chef, farmer, or fisherman from New York's Hudson Valley, with some great quotes about food. Get our favorite, below...

From June:

"If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him... The people who give you their food give you their heart." —César Chávez

Honoring the Hands is an organization that's raising awareness about migrant farm worker health through a documentary film and photography archive. Both aim to catalog the Migrant Health movement started by the 1962 Migrant Health Act.

A $25 donation gets you a calendar. Read more about Honoring the Hands here:
