Thank you to PJTC Kadima for joining PJ Our Way SGPV as we learned about food insecurity. Before we had lunch, Rabbi Josh, the Executive Director of Friends In Deed, spoke to us about: (1) what food insecurity is, (2) the food pantry at Friends In Deed, and (3) all of the mitzvahs Friends In Deed does for our community! After we had pizza lunch, we participated in a grocery store scavenger hunt where we followed clues to gather specific items that we purchased and will donate to the Friends In Deed food pantry. We ended our program with a reflection on all of the ways we can help the community; one way is to buy an extra box or can of food while we’re at the grocery store & donate it! Thank you to PJTC Kadima, Melissa, and Rabbi Josh for joining us! . . . #pjlibrary#pjourway#pjow#readtogether#jewishchildrensbooks#familytime#kids#family#jewishsgpv#pjlibrarysgpv#food#foodpantry#foodinsecurity#hunger
If you've seen these orange bags around town, then you've caught one of SPUR's volunteers in the act of rescuing food to share with area shelters, residential social service providers, and food pantries as part of our partnership with @shubies . Up to 40% of all food in America goes uneaten and ends up in landfills, according to research from @nrdc_org . Partnering with Shubie's, volunteers have rescued thousands of pounds of prepared food to share with individuals facing food insecurity.

I was in Raleigh, NC for the Closing the Hunger Gap Conference in early September. #latergram ⠀ .⠀ CTHG is a network of organizations and individuals expanding hunger relief efforts beyond food distribution towards strategies that promote social justice and address the root causes of hunger.⠀ .⠀ It was an inspiring and invigorating three days. The organizers and my fellow participants charged right into difficult conversations, from the politics of food donations to centering race in food councils, from putting our clients/customers/members into positions of authority to the outcomes and rules of capitalism. ⠀ .⠀ I left with great new contacts, acquaintances, and friends, as well as renewed energy to use my work to support food banks and food justice organizations.⠀
