JF&CS Family Table, the kosher food pantry serving the Greater Boston area, provides a full set of groceries (including perishables) to more than 500 enrolled households each month. We also provide food to anyone who comes to us in an emergency. During the pandemic, not only have we continued to meet the needs of our enrolled clients, we have also responded to hundreds of emergencies, providing critically needed food to families who are struggling with lost jobs and lost income. We anticipate a continued high level of need for food for many months to come due to the economic dislocation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
For many years, Temple Beth Shalom has committed to providing Family Table with 100 cans of tuna and salmon each month. Since the pandemic does not allow us to easily collect these items right now in person at TBS we are finding other ways to meet our commitment and help Family Table with the very important and critical work the agency is doing.
Can you please help and donate $5, $10, or $20 so we can purchase these items in bulk and have them delivered to Family Table? We have collected money for this since March but the need is ongoing. Let’s have TBS make a difference and show what a strong temple community can do in times of increased need. Thank you!
