Back Snack

Beth Torah continues to participate in the Harvesters BackSnack Program to distribute food packs to children in need.  

What is BackSnack?

We receive, pack and distribute backpacks full of healthy weekend snacks to elementary school children who qualify for free meals at school, but wouldn’t have enough to eat on the weekends without Harvesters.

Can I Help?

 Yes! The Backsnack program still needs drivers for delivery of the BackSnacks Jan-end of May.  The program could use at least two additional volunteers.        

Come to Beth Torah to pick up backpacks and deliver them to Pawnee Elementary at 91st and Antioch. Each pack weighs about 3-5lbs, so you may even be able to count this as part of your weekly exercise routine! 

You can make a difference in the lives of many children with a commitment of just 90 minutes each week.

If you can spare an hour or two a month, please contact Teresa Hellman at
