Food Justice Initiative in Action!
The Jewish community volunteers make this work possible- we invite you to do your part to help create a healthier Milwaukee!
NEXT MEETING: Late August- Date TBD Contact Karen Royster to learn more and help at email@example.com
Food Justice efforts have two main activities:
- SURPLUS HARVEST
THI volunteers go to select Farmer Markets once a week, July-October, asking vendors to donate what they cannot sell. Farmers are generally happy to share. When the market closes, volunteers pick up the produce, bag it and take it for use.
August 26-29 Families Go to the Farmers Markets! Sign up HERE!
We Glean From the Following Markets:
- Brown Deer Farmers Market
- Shorewood Farmers Market
- Riverwest Farmers Market
- Fondy Farmers Market
- Theinsville Farmers Market
Chop Shop Learn more here
Located at Solomon Community Temple, Mondays 8:30am-3pm RSVP here for August
On Mondays, THI volunteers work with inmates from the Milwaukee Women’s Correctional Center to wash, chop and cook vegetables to provide meals for shelters and day programs serving people in crisis. The challenge is to prepare healthy foods that are tasty to the fast food palate, especially among children. The Chop Shop specializes in bakery – beet brownies, zucchini muffins, carrot cake, etc. Also, the Chop Shop team makes salads, pickles, spaghetti sauce, fried eggplant and lasagna. The prepared food is delivered to a range of groups:
Hope House, Meta House, Sojourner Peace Center, Grand Avenue Club, Repairers of the Breach, House of Peace, Salvation Army.
Get Out the Vote Effort- coming soon!
