Anthropologist and physician Seth Holmes spent five years in the fields - living in labor camps, picking fruit and crossing the border with migrant workers - in order to learn more about what challenges they face. He documented his experiences in his book <i>Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies</i> to get a better insight into our food and health care system.&nbsp;</p><p> Thu, 27 Mar 2014 01:20:00 +0000 Ben Trefny 41499 at http://kalw.org Fresh Fruits, Broken Bodies: the lives of migrant workers Today on Your Call: Why are so many people being deported? http://kalw.org/post/today-your-call-why-are-so-many-people-being-deported <p></p><p> Mon, 16 Dec 2013 08:00:00 +0000 Malihe Razazan 37206 at http://kalw.org Today on Your Call: Why are so many people being deported?

Seventeen percent of the people the food banks serve are homeless. The rest are low-wage workers, older adults, children and the unemployed. The food for the food pantry program is distributed by 230 local pantries in the area, including a small neighborhood organization in San Francisco’s Mission district every Thursday.</p><p> Tue, 07 May 2013 23:32:55 +0000 Sarah Reynolds 26845 at http://kalw.org Not just the homeless rely on San Francisco's food banks
