For more than 30 years, the Bureau of Jewish Education has spearheaded the annual Passover Food Drive.
This year’s drive is a collaboration between the BJE and community organizations such as Jewish Family & Children’s Service, Ezras Cholim and Jewish Free Loan.
Each year, approximately 220 families receive these Passover basics as well as a grocery gift card and a kosher chicken to complete their seder meal. This year, organizers are expecting upwards of 250 families to request a food package.
Kosher-for-Passover food supplies, such as matzah, gefilte fish, wine and grape juice, matzah ball and soup mix, candy, cookies and cake mixes, as well as other items, are provided to any family that requests them. All products must be in a sealed container and designated “kosher for Passover.”
Members of the Jewish community who would like a Passover food package have until March 18 to request it. To request a package, contact Kathy Rood, at 602-762-7319 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Non-perishable items can be dropped off at JFCS at 2017 N. 7th St. in Phoenix from 9 am-4 pm weekdays until March 16; if you are interested in volunteering, email Lisa.Blumstein@jfcsaz.org.
