Food Drives

Passover Food Drive

Hunger never takes a holiday. As we approach the season of Passover, there will be hundreds among us who will struggle to put food on the table let alone those special items to celebrate a Seder.

YOU can help make a difference. Join Jewish Family Services, The Rabbinical Association of Greater Kansas City and area congregations in collecting Passover food items. (The first Seder begins Friday night, April 22nd.) More than 160 families will be helped through your participation in the Passover food drive.

Beth Torah will be collecting Matzah Meal and Grape Juice.  All packaged items should be labeled “kosher for Passover”. Drop off items at your congregation through April 15th.  Monetary donations are also being accepted by check or online through the JFS site http://www.jfskc.org/; funds are used to purchase food items to include in the holiday food packages. By participating in the Passover Food Drive you are putting into action the traditional words of the Haggadah, ‘let all who are hungry come and eat”.

There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available in connection with the Passover Holiday Food Drive. If you or someone you know wants to volunteer, please call (913) 730-1410 or email volunteer@jfskc.org.

For more information about the Food Pantry, please contact Jo Hickey, JFS Food Pantry Director at (913) 327-8257 or email her at jhickey@jfskc.org.
