Hunger in San Mateo County?
We Are Doing Something About It!

Justice Garden (Gan Tzedek)

One in four individuals in our community will be at risk of hunger—and our PJCC
will be part of the food justice equation. The mission of the PJCC’s new “Justice Garden”
is to grow organic produce to help feed local families at LifeMoves.
We will also provide social action, learning activities, educational workshops,
gardening instruction, and much more. By practicing the Jewish value of repairing
the world, tikkun olam, we will literally sow the seeds of justice for people in need.

The Justice Garden provides:

  • Social Action
  • Learning Activities
  • Educational Workshops
  • Gardening Instruction

We provide hands-on learning experiences for our preschool and other local schools that include plants, nutrition and how we can heal the world.

Delivering Results!

PJCC Preschoolers deliver freshly picked produce to the shelter! 

Pictured are Ethan & Max Smith and
Sadie & Owen Salles.

From 2014 to 2015, together we have achieved:

  • over 560 pounds of produce delivered to LifeMoves, including:
  • spinach
  • tomatoes
  • corn
  • carrots
  • summer squash
  • potatoes

Excited volunteers, from toddlers to seniors, plant, pluck and prune on each Garden Service Day.

11 raised garden beds overflow with organic produce such as: lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, watermelon, green beans, sweet potatoes, eggplant, corn, carrots, strawberries, and herbs.

And new produce ripens every day! Justice Garden is well on its way to feeding homeless families at LifeMoves, and all because of you.

Todah Rabah (thank you)!
