Yakima County, the fruit basket of Washington, sustains families through its abundant harvest. This includes leading hops, apples, grapes, cherries, and asparagus exports. The region boasts breweries, wineries, and cider houses. Agriculture thrives, supporting migrant farmworkers, warehouse workers, transportation, food industry, and farm-to-table programs. Healthy communities are crucial for these services. Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is committed to promoting community health, education, and awareness about our services.
