In September 2020, a volunteer and their family built the Peace Pantry for the San Jose Peace and Justice Center. Our intention with this project is to provide mutual aid for our local community. The ideology is simple: take what you need, share what you can.
Since the installment of the Peace Pantry to our front yard, we've seen it filled and emptied by community members. The unfortunate reality is that it is empty more often than full. While we do have a number of people and groups in our network who have been able to contribute food and supplies to the Pantry, we could do so much more with your help!
In an act of community care, any contribution you make will be directed towards purchasing food, toiletries, water, handsanitizer, and more to stock the Peace Pantry!
We are also asking for your help to continue developing our Peace Pantry program which we hope to expand in the months to come. The goal of installing Peace Pantries all throughout San José is one that we will work hard with our community to achieve!
