JBFC Birthday Blog

This March, JBFC is celebrating ten years of changing lives in Tanzania! You can join the celebration by Dining Out for JBFC.

Because of YOU, we have been able to build brighter futures for a decade. You have helped us provide a safe home to 48 vulnerable girls, serve more than 1,046,838 meals, pump nearly 28 million gallons of water for our village, and harvest more than 14.5 tons (that’s over 32,000 pounds!) of produce from our farm. Because of YOU, we have awarded almost $125,000 worth of school scholarships to Joseph and Mary Primary and Secondary School. And because of YOU, we have witnessed the birth of a multitude of cross-continental friendships which began through more than 40,000 hours of service from our amazing volunteers.  

This decade of impact could not have been possible without your help, and we want to provide you with more opportunities to support JBFC. By joining our “Dine Out for JBFC” series, you will be able to help local restaurants give back to our mission.

By eating out at one of our partner restaurants, you can directly impact JBFC. Each restaurant that we are partnering with has pledged to donate 10-15% of sales back to JBFC, which means that a $50 meal could give $5 to JBFC to buy a baby chick or a bag of seeds for the JBFC farm. All proceeds from Dine Out for JBFC will go to support the JBFC farm, which harvests 300 to 400 pounds of produce a week. That farm fresh food directly impacts the 340 students who eat breakfast and lunch at JBFC every school day.

All you have to do is show up, tell your server you are there to support JBFC, order a delicious meal, and enjoy it knowing that your dinner is going to directly impact JBFC and its mission to alleviate extreme poverty.
