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