As Shabbat nears, one last look at our email and we find a great story and link to a short video sent by David Fox, founder of Amir Project. The program brings youth together and empowers them to become stewards of the earth, learn basic garden skills, grow nutritious food to feed people who are hungry and in so doing, turn them into social justice leaders. Amir ran this summer in 23 camps across the country and now, as the harvest is at its richest, David has sent this amazing 2 minute video to show us exactly what the Farmers and campers have done at one of his camps. The Good People Fund is proud of the investment we have made in Amir and its founder and we are thrilled to see it all live.
All of the produce grown has been turned over to local food pantries and soup kitchens, further connecting the camp to the community and feeding hungry people.
