There is information about Just Harvest’s Fresh Access program on the table outside of the church office. All of the area farmer’s markets are listed (some of which run through November) and there are details about using Access (food stamps) at the markets. Please pick up a flyer if you or someone you know can use this program!
Foundation of Hope (www.foundationofhope.org) is seeking mentors for incarcerated or recently released individuals. The objective of the program is to reduce the chance of the mentee returning to jail by building a relationship of trust and understanding. Mentors complete a two-hour training and are asked to make a commitment of 6-12 months, meeting with a mentee 3-4 times a month. Contact Brittany Buttry-Watson, firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-324-3343.
The Swissvale Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday from 9-1:00 in the parking lot behind Dickson School (7301 Schoyer Ave) through October. Find out more at swissvalefarmersmarket.org.
