At the second annual JSAM-Which event, Met Council partnered with the Heschel School, Park East Day School and 92st Y to bring together 200 volunteers for an afternoon of service taking action against hunger in New York City. All food packaged was distributed to hunger New Yorkers.
Combating food insecurity is one of Met Council’s top priorities. Met Council is constantly on the forefront of creating innovative approaches to fighting hunger. Our kosher pantry system distributed five million pounds of kosher food at 33 monthly sites each year to low income families and individuals throughout the five boroughs of NYC.
The day included: volunteers filling 400 bags of trail mix, creating 100 toy gift bags and packaging 20 bags with food for Chanukah to make latkas, including: potatoes, oils, apple sauce, gelt.
The community event was funded by UJA-Federation’s Jewish Social Action Month (JSAM) grant.
