Passover Food Drive

Help Feed the Hungry for Passover

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 Monday, April 10.) More than 160 families will be helped through your participation in the Passover food drive.

Among the items needed are grape juice, Matzah and Matzah meal, cake meal, baking mixes, Matzah ball mix and soup. Our congregation has chosen to collect donations of Matzah Meal and Grape Juice. Packaged items should be labeled “kosher for Passover”. Drop off items at Beth Torah through March 27.  

Monetary donations are also being accepted by check or online through the JFS site; 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
