2023 High Holiday Food Drive

As we get ready to celebrate the High Holidays, we also will continue our tradition of collecting food to help our neighbors who are struggling with food insecurity. Our help is needed to ensure there is ample food on the shelves of the Person to Person food pantry. Our previous efforts have made a difference in the lives of so many in our community and we are hoping to exceed past donations this year.


Distribution of Bags

Empty bags, with a list of requested foods, will be available to be picked up at the Temple as of Friday, 9/15 for those participating in the services virtually. The bags will also be handed out to each family at Temple on Rosh Hashana. Congregants can use their own bags, if preferred. Please fill the bags with food and return them to the truck parked at the Temple on Yom Kippur or any day until Wednesday, 9/27.

Items Most Needed - NO EXPIRED FOOD!

Please check dates on food items prior to adding them to your bag. Expired food cannot be used!

Volunteers - Calling All Families
