High School Students help out at local Foodshare

Earlier this week, 12 of our high schoolers worked together like a well trained team at FoodShare, sorting, inspecting, labeling, and packaging over 6,503 pounds of food for delivery to local food pantries all over the region. They accomplished a great deal in a short amount of time. Feeding the hungry is one of the most basic and important mitzvot in Jewish life, but we don’t often have the opportunity to do so.
