High Holy Days and On-Going Hunger Projects


HIGH HOLY DAYS FOOD COLLECTION 

Local food pantries continue to be in crisis. Please help us to help our neighbors who are food insecure by bringing nourishing non-perishable foods to the food van at the temple between Kol Nidrei and the beginning of Neilah. Those who will be attending services online may drop off their donations at the temple during the week between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur – collection box inside temple. Volunteers are also needed to accept foods on Yom Kippur– sign up at wct.org/foodvansignup. To help deliver collected foods to the pantries on the day after Yom Kippur, you can sign up there as well. Look for the list of foods needed at wct.org/foodvan – and check to see that the foods are not past or near their expiration dates. In lieu of – or in addition to – bringing food, we welcome your contributions of supermarket gift cards (Stop & Shop, ShopRite, etc) in denominations no larger than $25. 

MENSCH OF THE MONTH 

Feeding the hungry is a major part of our work. A food cart sits at the entry to the temple. Each grade takes turns in decorating the cart but the whole congregation is invited to fill it. We urge you to bring a donation to our Mensch of the Month food cart whenever you come to the temple: 

January          4th Grade        Healthy Grains: Brown Rice, whole cornmeal, quinoa, etc. 
February        3rd Grade        Canned meats, fish and beans 
March            2nd Grade        Low-sodium soups and coffee/tea 
April                1st Grade        Canned fruits, vegetables and pasta sauces 
May               Kindergarten     Healthy snacks and large cereal boxes (low-sugar) 
Jun, Jul, Aug                           Healthy non-perishable food
