The Temple Emanu-El Social Action Committee asks that everyone consider donating the food they might have eaten on Yom Kippur to their Livingston neighbors’ in need. Last year Temple members collected nearly 300 grocery bags full of food following the High Holiday services to feed families in the local area. This was a program coordinated with Community Outreach Hunger Warehouse (CHOW) and sponsored by the Social Action Committee of Temple Emanu-El. The Temple Emanu-El High Holy Day FOOD DRIVE invites members and the public to help stock the shelves of CHOW. What is needed? Everything. The pantry shelves are especially bare after the summer months.
Canned Goods, Cereal, Peanut Butter, Cleaning Supplies, Paper goods. Anything!
Who will get the food? Our Livingston Neighbors through the C.H.O.W.
Pantry and the Livingston Welfare department receive the food. Any leftovers are distributed to the needy in our greater area through other food pantries.
Just bring your bag on to help your neighbors. Consider adding a gift card to Shoprite or Kings so your neighbors can purchase fresh food as well.
The Social Action Committee is proud to continue this worthwhile high holy tradition. Temple Emanu-El’s very active Social Action Committee has programs throughout the year to try to give relief for families in need of support. These ongoing programs are an integral part of the congregation’s involvement in the local community in New Jersey.
