This summer, join us as we gear up for a second season of our “Plant a Row” program designed to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to our Community Food Pantry and Kosher Food Pantry clients. Green thumb or not, there are many ways to get involved!
Volunteers plant and harvest vegetables throughout the spring and summer. Monocacy Farm offers a volunteer program to tend vegetables for JFS; volunteers are also encouraged to plant a row for JFS in their own gardens.
Delivery is the next step in the process. There are many opportunities to transport produce from community farms or the JCC to the food pantry.
With your help, 130 families a month will receive fresh produce from our food pantry. Donations – store bought or home grown – may be dropped off at JFS during regular business hours or at the JCC front desk.
We are proud to accept donations of fresh produce including:
Items may be dropped off at our office during regular business hours or at the JCC Welcome Desk.
