“If you eat produce, this issue affects you,” said Eva Longoria in an interview with HuffPost LatinoVoices.
Longoria explains how many children die from heat exhaustion and lack of water. They are also constantly working in toxic environment. She said that even though the pesticide level was lowered, the level is suitable for a 160 pound person. “So if you are a child in the field you are exposed to 2 to 3 times as much as you are supposed to,” Longoria said.
The psychological effects are also most detrimental to their success, she said.
“These children don’t have an answer to ‘What do you want to do when you grow up?’ They feel like they don’t have any other options because they are stuck in the cycle of poverty,” Longoria stresses.

Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas’ onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida’s tomato fields to follow the harvest.
From the Producers of the Academy-Award® nominated film, WAR/DANCE, Executive Producer Eva Longoria and director U. Robert Romano, this award-winning documentary provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of these children who struggle to dream while working 12 – 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.
