Two tons of kosher for Passover food were delivered to Met Council’s JCC in Far Rockaway by Stop and Shop for victims of Hurricane Sandy. This $5,000 worth of food includes 800 pounds of matzah, a food staple for the holiday, to allow residents to observe the traditions despite the devastation.

Councilmember Donovan Richards told NY 1 that 2,000 residents of Far Rockaway are still without power and estimates that 40% of the Jewish Community’s homes were damaged by Sandy. This food will allow thousands of people in this devastated neighborhoods enjoy celebrating Passover with their families.
