Welcome. Since the commission was established in 1968, the growers have shown support for the places where they live and work through community outreach. Currently, the community outreach program includes two and four-year scholarships for students whose parents or guardians are table grape field workers, education grants to support innovation in the classroom in California’s grape growing areas, and four-year scholarships for students from the Coachella and San Joaquin Valleys who plan to study agriculture at a California college or university. Other activities have included Chefs Move to Schools, science fairs, afterschool 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 give back to their communities.
