A recent Commentary praised the work of food suppliers, companies that work hard to keep the shelves stocked and the supply chain of goods flowing, allowing people to obtain what is needed for everyday life in these incredibly stressful times. I would like to express profound gratitude for an overlooked group that is sadly often hit hardest by COVID-19 – Farm workers and workers in food processing plants and slaughterhouses who deserve a loud thank you from all. So many groups, first responders, nurse, doctors have been thanked with concerts and fund raising. Wouldn’t it be great if some local, well-known musicians celebrated this hard working and worthy group.
