Renewing our commitment to end hunger
Many of us just experienced MAZON, A Jewish Response to Hunger's traveling exhibit. The This is Hunger truck, an interactive experience on wheels was parked in the Adath parking lot at the end of June. Stepping inside was an illuminating and gut-wrenching experience. The exhibit shed light on the profound prevalence of hunger in America. Did you know 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger? Nearly 6 million of our seniors are food insecure. Over 13 million children live with hunger every day.
The High Holy Days is a time to renew our commitment and raise our voices on behalf of the 42.2 million Americans who struggle with hunger every day.
This year Adath will once again donate our High Holy Days Food Collection to the St. Louis Park Emergency Program (STEP). Our goal is for each Adath household to bring two grocery bags of food or make a $36 donation.
Bags can be brought to the trailer near the Social Hall entrance as you enter for Kol Nidre services.
What is needed: Everyday non- perishable and household items. Think or your favorite meal ingredients, the spices you cook with all the time, and the healthy foods you and/or your family eat on a regular basis. We also need those every day non-food household items like toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and cleaning products.
What we don’t need: Please do not donate perishable (refrigerated or frozen) items, used, open, damaged or outdated food. Please carefully check expiration dates before donating.
