We're spreading the chesed throughout the year. Instead of just one Yom Chesed date, this year we have three! Please register below to join us for our first Kol Yom Chesed event on December 9.
Description: JF&CS Family Table is the largest kosher food pantry in New England, providing healthy food to individuals and families in need on a monthly and emergency basis. Family Table relies on the efforts of dedicated volunteers who come together to collect, sort, pack and deliver groceries for recipients. Each household receives a complete set of groceries including holiday items, such as challah and grape juice.
Project: Each family will pack groceries and deliver the packages to families in need.
Additional information: Adult volunteers will need to fill out a CORI form by November 14. Each car should allow room for 10-15 bags.
