Provide local families with fresh fruits and vegetables this spring and summer by “Planting a Row” for JFS! 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 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.

Do you have a little extra growing in your garden or from your trip to the grocery store or farmers market? We are proud to accept donations of fresh produce including:

Green Beans 
Fresh Herbs
...and more!


To drop off items, please call 610-821-8722 or e-mail to set up an appointment with the JFS office.
