What We Do

Promoting Food Justice

Through the Surplus Harvest activity, we gather produce that otherwise would have gone to waste and deliver it to food pantries and shelters. Tikkun Ha-Ir also runs the Chop Shop Program for women inmates to gain culinary skills toward a certificate at MATC, and to make food more user friendly for the recipients.

Programs:

  • Food Collection at Farmers Markets (April-November)
  • Chop Shop (May-October)

Educating the Jewish Community on Pressing Issues in Our City

With our Social Justice Book Club and Speaker series, we present multiple opportunities to our community to dig deeper into issues of concern and leave with tangible ways to make a difference.

Programs:

  • Social Justice Book Club
  • Speaker Series

Supporting Those in Crisis

We work with many community organizations to further their work in helping those most vulnerable in our community. In particular, provides monthly meals at the Cathedral Center and runs two large drives throughout the year to ensure the local shelters have the supplies they need.

Programs:

  • Glean Machine Goods Drive- May
  • Holiday Gifts for the Homeless Drive- November-December
