Take what you need...

Our values of human rights and resistance to oppression define us as a community. We challenge injustice anywhere. So we are in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters in their struggle for justice.

 
Our commitment to Black liberation is connected to our commitment to Palestinian liberation. White supremacy and systemic racism pervade both American and Israeli society and government.
 
To protest police violence against Black Americans and the militarization of domestic police, we do what we can. Hundreds of thousands of us are in the streets. Some of us can't march now in coronavirus time.
 
But food justice is very much racial justice. Living in food deserts disproportionately affects communities of color. Palestinians have learned that in crisis, they must survive collectively. They gather community strength through mutual solidarity and support. They are resilient, compassionate... and defiant.
 
Learning from Palestine, Monica from LOCF thought of her own garden. She is now sharing produce and seedlings with her neighbors and anyone passing by.
 
"I realized I throw too much food away even when I try my best to use everything. I realized that not only is money for food an issue during this crisis, but availability.
 
Then I remembered the newsletter on April 13th and the photo from Palestine. I ran inside and printed a card, attached it to a basket and set it out on the corner. "

 

Monica says, "I'm am grateful for the inspiration that helped me work my way through the collective despair by sharing what I have in the spirit of generosity that I have found only in Palestine."

If you are asked about Palestinian olive oil, that is not us!  But you can steer people to the Canaan Palestine website for organic and fair trade olive oil and artisan food shipped safely to their doorstep while they shelter at home.  This is the product of the Palestinian farmers you support with your activism!
