For the past 39 years the NCJWC Toronto Section Passover Food Drive has delivered kosher for Passover food to community members who would not otherwise have been able to afford it. We order special for Passover food from suppliers and pack the approximately 2200 boxes of food and deliver these boxes to food insecure recipients. These recipients' names have been provided by the various Jewish support agencies. In the past, we have been able to have volunteers pack the boxes of food and also deliver the boxes to the recipients.
With COVID 19 in the community, we were unable to utilize our volunteers and had to pay for the packing and the delivery of the food boxes. This has created a greater need for funds to pay for the increased expenses of packing, delivering and the higher cost of food.
But thanks to you, our generous community, once again the Passover Food Drive was a great success. Stay tuned for the Passover Food Drive 2023 celebrating our 40th anniversary of delivering Passover Food!
