2023 Passover Food Drive

“Let all who are hungry come and eat”

The Community Food Drive is happening again this year! Food will be collected March 12 – 28 at several sites throughout the community. Distribution will be April 2.

Thank you to the dedicated Passover Food Drive volunteers and staff who helped pack and deliver Passover food bags to Jewish community members last year! Every bag that was packed was delivered to a grateful recipient. Together, we managed to deliver over 400 food bags to our community.

The Community Passover Food Drive (Ma’ot Chittim) is collecting monetary donations to fund this important work. Please donate below.
