Concrete Jungle was built by a group of friends-- a community that loved biking around the city and discovering the abundant, fruity treasures hidden in plain sight. Many of you attended the Ciderfest parties fueled by those found fruits that then led to Concrete Jungle’s creation in 2009. (For our origin story, check out this awesome video)
Our concept of community changed throughout COVID. While we have had to keep our distance this year, we’ve needed you more than ever to ensure that the families we serve, many of whom are at higher risk if they contract COVID, stay safe, healthy and well-fed. With your help, we’ve made 9,224 deliveries to provide over 480,000 pounds of fresh, healthy produce and groceries to families in need.
As we race towards the end of the year, we’re calling on our friends for support. Monthly donors will help sustain Concrete Jungle as we look ahead to another year of tremendous need. In honor of our 11th birthday, please consider becoming a member by giving $11/month! We also have giving levels at $20, $50, $100, and $250/month and in exchange, we’ve got some super cool swag for monthly donors!
