Community Relations

At Tanimura & Antle, we pride ourselves on being an involved and considerate community neighbor. There are several causes in our world that demand and deserve attention. We choose to support those that directly benefit our immediate community, our employees and industry.

Child Development

Tanimura & Antle Child Development Center
We partner with the Monterey County Office of Education MCOE Migrant Education Program to offer a full-service Child Development Center at our Salinas facility. The Center offers preschool and childcare services for the children of our harvest employees, but not exclusively. These services are also open to all families meeting MCOE program participant criteria. Tanimura & Antle employees volunteer to read to the children on a weekly basis, and the company continues to make additional donations to the Center, which has included playground equipment and grass sod for the playground.

Salinas Valley Salvation Army
For the past decade, Tanimura & Antle has partnered with the Salinas Valley Salvation Army to bring wholesome and nutritious fresh produce to Salinas Valley families during the winter holiday season.  In addition to the donation of fresh fruits and vegetables for the meal baskets, Tanimura & Antle donates the use of their coolers  to refrigerate the donated food and to be used as a distribution center for this Salvation Army’s holiday meal program plus we volunteer the TA Santa, Mrs. Claus and Elf for the KSBW Share Your Holiday food and toy drive.  Learn More
