JF&CS Family Table
A wonderful opportunity for families to experience hands-on tzedakah and make a difference in the lives of those who are less fortunate.
JF&CS Family Table, the largest kosher food pantry in eastern Massachusetts, provides healthy food on a monthly and emergency basis to individuals and families in need. The number of people being served has essentially doubled in the past few years as a result of difficult economic times, and Family Table is presently serving almost 800 individuals every month.
There are two ways Schechter families can help:
(1) Volunteer at the "Distribution Day" for which Schechter has pledged to help:
Where: Jewish Family & Children's Service
1430 Main Street, Waltham, MA 02451
Volunteers will pack specific orders for recipient families and then deliver to one or two recipients in the Greater Boston area.
(2) Help fulfill Schechter’s commitment to Family Table to provide 45 cans of tuna each month.
Consider adding a can of tuna to your shopping list. Bins are located near the entrance of each campus. Also, make sure to bring in a can as tzedakah when your child celebrates a birthday or is a "Shabbat helper"!
