This event has already occurred!
We are seeking volunteers to join us for a day of harvesting on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 from 9 am – 1 pm at America’s Grow-a-Row farm in the Clinton area.
America’s Grow-a-Row is a non-profit organization that grows and gleans fresh, healthy produce that is then donated to food pantries, soup kitchens, crisis centers, and food banks in NJ, PA, and NYC. They are dedicated to donating 100% of the produce grown at their farms. Since they began in 2002, they have donated over 7.7 million pounds of produce! Some of the produce harvested on August 14 will be donated to JFS for homebound, low income clients.
Upon arrival volunteers will be educated about hunger in NJ. Then, it’s time to volunteer - you might be planting, harvesting, or gleaning (rescuing excess produce), followed by lunch provided by JFS.
No prior experience is necessary. We can accommodate all levels of ability. Children under age 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
Reservations are required. To sign up as a volunteer contact JFS at 908 725-7799 or email Maris Chavenson at [email protected] byThursday August 9, 2018.
