Translated Summary: Sofia Verde - 1,600 Mexican and Guatemalan migrant workers will be in the midst of the pandemic helping in the fields to grow and harvest food so that the food supply chain to Canadian supermarkets is not interrupted. The workers will arrive in Montreal on April 16. Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, and Manitoba also receive significant help from seasonal agricultural workers who come from Latin America year after year to help with the growing and harvesting of crops. In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, these workers are heroes who help so that our tables are not short on food. Organizations like The Latin Section in British Columbia are organizing to bring food to these heroes of the fields on weekends.
