Purim at Masbia!

On Sunday, March 20th, one of our highly dedicated volunteer groups, Global-Potential, served food to low-income individuals and families at Masbia, Met Council’s Kosher Community Kitchen. Global-Potential is a global leadership service program that works with inner-city youth from a variety of religious and ethnic backgrounds.

This was a particularly special day at the soup kitchen, as it was offering a festive celebration for the clients on the Jewish holiday of Purim, which some might call a “Jewish Halloween.” In the spirit of Purim, the members of Global-Potential were dressed up in costume while serving the clients.

It was a bittersweet day at Masbia, as it was rewarding for the volunteers to help the individuals and families, but also painful to see so many hungry people.
