First Food Order for Refugees

Produce from the farm this winter is going almost exclusively to feed Syrian refugee families all over Northern Jordan.  This food aid comes at a crucial time as the World Food Program has just suspended food aid for over 1.7 million Syrian refugees due to a lack of funding.    As the winter sets in, Operation Mercy Jordan is pleased to produce and distribute over 15,000 lbs of fresh produce per month to displaced families who are in need. 

Our first food aid offering included two varieties of eggplant and a generous portion of sweet corn

Half of our first weeks order of 210 boxes during packing.  Note the two types of eggplant
