Justice

Jacob’s Well is committed to meeting the needs of justice in our community, our city, and around the world.

MONTHLY FOOD DISTRIBUTION

Our Harvester’s food distribution events happens on the second Wednesday of the month from 1PM-4:30PM, and we are always looking for volunteers to participate. These events are very important for many food vulnerable people in Argentine.

This is a drive-up service where pre-portioned food is placed in clients’ vehicles after it has been sorted into individual portions for each family.
