Thank you @infinitiveincconsulting we are so grateful to have you as an annual partner.

The Mission: JK Community Farm

You make it possible for our farm to provide healthy food for families in need, and we are so grateful. With your help, the JK Community Farm was able to provide 146,000 lbs of healthy food to the food insecure throughout Northern Virginia in 2020.
In 2021, the JK Community Farm will be expanding our farm to meet the growing needs of our community. #givingtuesday is 1 week from today, and it is our goal to raise $100,000 to grow 230,000lbs of healthy food for families in need. Our generous friends at JK Moving Services will be matching every donation dollar for dollar, will you join us in nourishing our community? As little as $35 provides two weeks of food for someone who does not know where their next meal is coming from. www.jkcommunityfarm.org/donate

In this difficult, unpredictable and sometimes crazy year, we have so much to be grateful for.
There were times this season when we thought we may not be able to host volunteers, or that people may not show up. We added volunteer dates, made our groups significantly smaller, and our community always made sure that our seedlings were planted, crops were harvested and made it to the food pantries.

We still have a few crops to harvest and sweet potatoes to bag, but we are so thankful for our wonderful community and your help to make sure our food pantries have healthy food to serve.

While this leafy green won’t cause your biceps to inflate like balloons, it is dense in vitamins and minerals, low in calories and is beneficial for maintaining healthy skin, hair and strong bones, as well as helping with digestion, lowering the risk for heart disease and improving blood glucose control in diabetics. What more can you ask from your food?! 💚🌱

#ThankfulThursday This week, Loudoun Hunger Relief has entered its 29th year of service to Loudoun County residents in need of food. In the past 28 years, the pantry that started as Loudoun Interfaith Relief has helped families survive their darkest days.

In all that time, we have never had to turn anyone away because we didn't have food to give--a testament to the generosity of our Loudoun community. Thank you!

As we enter our 29th year of service amid this time of trouble, we are serving more families than ever. The need has been multiplied by the pandemic.

In 1991, LHR served a dozen or so families a week with a handful of volunteers. That first year, about 60,000 pounds of food were distributed.

In the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2020, we served more than 13,000 Loudoun residents at least once, and had more than 73,000 service encounters with almost 20,000 additional residents. More than 2 million pounds of food was distributed.

The backbone of Loudoun Hunger Relief's services has been our volunteers. More than a quarter of a million hours have been given in service of others at the pantry in the last 28 years.

Over the course of 28 years, we have helped our neighbors in need through 1.3 million pantry visits and over 23 million pounds of food. And in the course of those 28 years, every person who has served our neighbors through the pantry has also tried to offer hope, compassion and kindness. We are grateful!

Hi! The Free Tree For Me event is coming up soon. Hope to see everyone there. I don’t have a species list yet, but I’m hoping to have some long leaf pine trees available, in addition to other varieties of trees and shrubs. Would anyone have space to be able to plant them? This year, we have a lot more volunteers and the plan is to have multiple lines, so that everyone can get through the lines a lot quicker. Local non-profit organizations will be set up with events, displays, and make-n-takes for the kids. The VA. Forestry Dept. and members of the Society of American Foresters will be there too. Their events are TBD and I’ll put more information out on that as we get closer to the event. We will also have free sample seed packets available, one per family please, while supplies last. Everyone, from all localities are welcome! This is a kid friendly event. If you are connected with a non-profit organization and would like to set up a table with an interactive activity, please send an email to Mohamed or Cheri Elrahhal at [email protected] Please put tree giveaway event in subject line. Thanks! https://www.facebook.com/events/484580075382963/?ti=icl
Hello JK Community Farm - how to I connect someone in need to the resources and food you provide? I have someone out of Harpers Ferry who probably could use some help with healthy foods. Thanks in advance! Might be good to have this post on your page for people to see the full cycle of this operation playing out .
This is an amazing and rewarding place to volunteer. I went out a couple weeks ago on a Saturday with a group and picked sweet potatoes, and green peppers. It was a great feeling knowing that all of the vegetables we picked were going to help those in need. On top of that, the farm is in a stunning location!
We are participating with JK Community Farm this month as our charity of the month. We look forward to volunteering later this month.
I just volunteered today planting. We planted 1800 lettuce plants that will help feed 1800 families in need in Loudoun County. Consider volunteering for a couple hours to help. They need the help.
Any information about how local residents who are interested in farming can volunteer or work on the community farm?
This is amazing and such a blessing to the community!
