For the second year in a row, we’ll be harvesting seasonal farm-fresh produce at America’s Grow-a-Row, 150 Pittstown Road, Pittstown, NJ. The event will take place on Sunday, October 30, at noon. All produce we harvest will be given to those in need. This event is open to spouses and significant others, children, and grandchildren interested in doing a mitzvah. It promises to be a wonderful NCJW Family Day.
Grow-a-Row produce is delivered throughout the state of New Jersey to food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens, Free Farm Market℠ programs, faith-based pantries, and more. If there is a need for fresh, healthy produce, Grow-a-Row does its best to meet that need. Among the recipients of the produce harvested at Grow-a-Row are the Interfaith Food Pantry of Morris County, the Community Food Bank and the Morristown Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center.
The farm is in beautiful country and we’ll spend a lovely day in the outdoors. While what is available for picking varies, the range could be apples, peppers, green beans, cabbage, corn and more. To sign up, e-mail Melanie Levitan (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’ll try to arrange carpools.
