Join JVC this fall as we journey from farm to table in Baltimore! Starting with environmental/farming volunteer projects and ending with serving meals to those in need in our community, there are plenty of ways to get involved. Join us for one or all the volunteer projects and see how service can be fun this season!
The first step to a healthy hearty meal is a clean environment and farms that grow our food! Join JVC volunteers as we explore the first step of the Food journey.
