The goal of the Supermarket Sweep FOODRAISER is to engage the Greater Metrowest Jewish community in the fulfillment of tikkun olam through helping to provide food for the hungry.
The JFS Kosher Food Pantry in Elizabeth and Bobrow Kosher Food Pantry of Oheb Shalom in South Orange together served an unprecedented number of people this year. On average they are serving 400-500 individuals a month. The pantries have received over 1,000 requests and were served emergency food this past year. With emergency food requests increasing and government funding decreasing, our Kosher Food Pantries need your donations to keep stocked.
The beneficiaries of the Kosher Food Pantry Programs include poor single parents and multi-challenged families, the unemployed, underemployed, the homeless, the isolated and the frail elderly. All recipients have demonstrated financial need.
