I recently signed up to be a Neighborhood Food Donor and want to spread the word about this great project. It's an opportunity to engage in meaningful tikkun olam (repairing the world) that impacts the local community in an on-going way. Better yet, it's super convenient and easy to involve children!
Go to: www.berkeleyfoodproject.org to read about the Berkeley Neighborhood Food Project. They bring you a bag once every two months, you fill it up with items from their grocery list, and they pick it up from your porch. It is then distributed by the food pantry housed by Friends Church at Sacramento and Cedar. They supply food 3 times per week to hungry families and elders in Berkeley/Albany.
You can sign up online and/or contact the Neighborhood Coordinator if you have questions: Judy Grether at firstname.lastname@example.org
