Tikkun Olam

Our tikkun olam committee helps to reduce hunger in our community through ongoing support of the Neighborhood Food Project of the Lamoille Community Food Share, the Morrisville summer lunches for children program, and gleaning for the Lamoille Community Food Share and the Vermont Foodbank. In the past, we have picked blueberries for the Food Share, and during Chol Homoed Sukkot we gleaned eggplant and chard. We also sponsored a Red Cross blood drive.

Other recent events include: a Fair Trade Fair where participants learned about fair labor practices while sampling Fair Trade products, our annual Food Drive during the High Holidays, and a special community event to learn about Salvation Farm’s Harvest and Hunger initiative. The year will culminate with a Mitzvah Day on Sunday, June 5, when everyone (young, old and in between) can participate in one of several projects to help make our communities that much better.
