A Hunger Solution... the Jewish Community

Synagogues, YM/YWHA's, JCC's, Hebrew Schools, Yeshivot and all other members of the Jewish community can help diminish hunger... garden by garden.

What We Do
The Campaign is a national effort utilizing the Internet that enables 40+ million Americans who grow food in home gardens to easily donate their excess harvest to registered local food pantries spread across all 50 states.

Why We Do It
One out of six Americans needs food assistance, but can't get fresh produce from the local food pantry, while, millions of American homeowners grow more food in their backyard gardens than they can possibly use.
It Doesn't Have to Be This Way! envisions an America where millions of gardeners eliminate malnutrition and hunger in their own community using only their backyard gardens.
