A Just Harvest serves a nightly meal in our restaurant style “Community Kitchen” and distributes emergency food to anyone in need. In 2012, A Just Harvest served 54,339 meals and distributed 296,000 pounds of food.
All are welcome, and there are no forms to fill out for approval – a welcome change for families who need emergency food.
A Just Harvest also addresses the root causes of hunger by organizing our communities to win public policies that alleviate poverty and by creating econonmic development opportunities and urban agriculture projects in the Rogers Park neighborhood.
We welcome volunteers, including families with children aged 12+, to serve in our community kitchen and to assist with our urban agriculture projects.
