The Harvest (La Cosecha) Film Screening

March 23 - March 30

Seward Co-op is honored to partner with Student Action with Farmwworkers and Shine Global during National Farmworker Awareness Week to provide free access of The Harvest (La Cosecha), the 2010 award-winning documentary that provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of the migrant children who struggle to dream while working 12 – 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.

Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. The Harvest (La Cosecha) profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest.
