There are many ways to help!

Help us Teach a Man to Fish and get the fisherman a job.  The JLF has several revenue sources to help us remain sustainable such as food sales, catering, The Kitchen rental and The Klassroom.  These social enterprises cover approximately 75% of our operating expenses. We need your help with the rest.
