Welcome! Since the commission was established in 1968, California grape growers have shown support to the communities where they live and work through community outreach. Currently, the community outreach program includes two and four-year scholarships for table grape field workers and their children, as well as four-year scholarships for students from the Coachella and San Joaquin Valleys who plan to study agriculture at a California college or university. Recipe cards, bookmarks, and fact sheets, are some of the many materials that have been donated to community groups and organizations. The community outreach program provides education grants to support innovation and learning in classrooms across California’s grape growing regions. Other outreach activities have included Chefs Move to Schools, science fairs, after school programs, 4-H, and health and nutrition projects in schools and senior centers. The community outreach program is one of many ways that California table grape growers like to give back to their communities. If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to email the commission at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 559.447.8350.
