Inside the secret food bank that keeps farmworkers from going hungry

In Santa Cruz County, California, Dr. Ann López, of the Center for Farmworker Families, organizes a secret monthly food bank for marginalized farmworkers who are mostly indigenous and undocumented. Organized completely by word of mouth to avoid deportation threats from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, the food bank helps defray farmworkers' costs, which include about 75% to 80% of their typical salaries in rent.
