On Feb. 7th, a group of high school students from Fairfield Ludlowe High School in Connecticut came to learn about PPEHRC as part of their service club field trip in partnership with Youth Service Opportunities Project. We had a great time with the students making sandwiches to pass out to the Kensington community as well as having the students participate in the direct action of handing out the sandwiches they had prepared. It was great to see the students so engaged in the outreach process and we were so thankful for the donations that came in for us to provide a meal and loaves of bread to those in the community.
At the Stop the Cuts Rally and People’s Assembly, free food was distributed and participants decided to form the new people’s coalition, ‘Opposition to Oppression’
TO US, FINE DINING MEANS A SQUARE MEAL.
In 2010, nearly half of food pantries turned people away because they ran out of food.
People line up before dawn hoping to get groceries.
PPEHRC needs your help, especially if you live in Philadelphia or nearby.
Do you have any construction skills? Would you like to donate clothing, blankets, or canned food for homeless families? Do you know of any churches or organizations who would like to assist homeless women?
The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign needs your help to support the farm at 3rd and Cumberland to feed our community.
We need your help to turn vacant lots into farms. These farms will provide us with a free source of healthy food.
Friends, we have bad news for PPEHRC this morning. After hours and hours of hard labor from may amazing people on our farm someone came and took all of our raised beds and wood from our farm last night. We can’t let this get us down. We are growing the food on this farm because we need to feed our families. So we will continue!! We need your help too. If you have any dirt, wood, plants, lawnmowers, weed whackers, any tools for yard work, and some time to spend on the farm we really need your help.
Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign is stepping up its farm organizing. We are committed to working toward a city where our communities can support themselves. No longer will people, our friends and families and children, go hungry while vacant land sits empty and unused. We are no longer waiting for politicians to address the problems in this the second hungriest congressional district in the nation or the 40,000 vacant lots in Philadelphia or the many environmental problems we face everyday and will increasingly face. For this, we need support from our members and friends.
