Farmworker Food Security in the Northern Borderlands
Teresa Mares, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of Vermont
This talk examines household food access among Latino/a dairy workers in Vermont, the majority of whom have migrated in recent years from central and southern Mexico. As a border state with an active presence of Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, many of the same fears, anxieties, and dangers that are connected to the southern border are reproduced in the state of Vermont; with significant consequences for food security, diet-related health, and the overall well-being of migrant workers.
