Food Not Bombs Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton Pennsylvania Valerie Noonan lvfoodnotbombs@protonmail.com foodnotbombs.net/new_site/ Our organization is directly involved in the sharing of free vegan food. This is based on the belief that food waste is merely driven by corporate greed and has no bearing on the quality and quantity of food that actually reaches people. Understanding that food scarcity is only part of the equation regarding the climate crisis is not only imperative but a must As Food Not Bombs we exist to bridge that gap, the sharing of food isn’t just right, it is just! The commodification of life necessities under our system has caused us to forget that life and nature exist outside of capital. They exist outside our modes of production and our “free markets.” Non-Profit 2024-02-07 13:44:39

Kirkridge is a place
to be,
and to become
a people of hope,
compassion, justice, and service.

Since 1942, Kirkridge Retreat and Study Center has provided a place for rest and renewal to pilgrims along life’s journey. Our retreats, our hospitality, our gorgeous vistas, and our sacred grounds have blessed, and continue to bless, countless lives.

We are located on a ridge of the beautiful Kittatinny Ridge of Northeast Pennsylvania, overlooking the Delaware Valley. You can say that the Kirkridge community is, too, now standing on our own precipice, as we look back on our over 75 years of service. For the past 75 years, we have served a thriving Christian and interfaith community. Looking ahead, we plan on serving an even wider community of people of good faith, no faith, and interfaith – and providing safe harbor to all.
As we work to embrace a wider community, our spirit of excellent hospitality is more important than ever. Our historic motto of “picket and pray” has now extended itself “to protect, tend, and embrace.” From the peak of the ridge to the clear waters in the valley below, the new century calls for stewardship, nurturing, and embracing inner stability with outer sustainability.

We invite you, as pilgrims in search of a balanced life, to help us nurture the ground on which we stand and the people with whom we interact each day to build a safe, sustainable future.

Mission:

WeConservePA helps people care for, wisely use, and enjoy what nature offers. We help organizations and individuals to effectively and efficiently conserve land, protect and restore waterways, implement sustainable practices, and connect people to the outdoors. We foster understanding of conservation and advocate for pro-conservation governmental policy to promote a high quality of life for all.

History:

WeConservePA started in 1991 as an informal gathering of land trust leaders seeking to advance common interests. These leaders incorporated the “Pennsylvania Land Trust Association” in 1995 to address and focus on the broad needs of land trusts—to take on initiatives and activities that no single organization could effectively handle or wish to handle on its own. Since the 1990s, the organization’s mission has expanded to help people protect, wisely use, and enjoy what nature offers, whether that is through land trusts, local government open space programs, environmental advisory councils, trail groups, or other organizations. Today, WeConservePA is made up of 70 dues-paying, voting conservation organizations as well as hundreds of individuals who contribute their time, energy, and money to the organization’s endeavors. The voting organizations elect the board and set WeConservePA’s purposes. (The organizations in turn count more than 100,000 Pennsylvanians as members and contributors.) WeConservePA is registered with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Charitable Organizations and has held 501(c)3 tax status with the Internal Revenue Service since 1996. The organization adopted its present name with a vote of the member organizations and an amendment of its articles of incorporation in 2020.   For more information about WeConservePA, see the About page of our website.
