High Holy Days Food Project

High Holy Days Food Collection
Tues, Oct 4 and Wed, Oct 5

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 Nidre (10/4) and the beginning of Neilah (10/5). 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 Fri, 10/7, 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.

WCT Food Cart
September

A food cart sits at the entry to our Religious School as a collection center for local food pantries and specific projects in which we are involved. Your monthly participation is invited – just check dates on donated foods. In September, we are collecting low-sugar cereal boxes, soft granola bars, juice boxes, and fruit cups.  Foods for subsequent months listed in Makom, weekly daf and email.

Feeding Westchester

While the memory of these Holy Days lingers, please take time to write a check to Feeding Westchester (formerly Food Bank for Westchester). Your donation of $36 or more will help alleviate hunger in 300 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters throughout Westchester. Send donations to 200 Clearbrook Road, Elmsford, NY 10523.
