Feeding the Hungry

Wed, 05/09/2018 - 6:07pm -- marnilh
Calling all volunteers and master chefs, we need your help for our next session of Feeding the Hungry program on Thursday, May 17th.
If you have volunteered in the past thank you very much!
The Temple Avodat Shalom volunteers will again be providing 120 hot dinners to Bergen County’s hungry at the Bergen County Shelter in Hackensack.
We are asking for prepared food donations in 5 lb. increments of each of the following foods:
  • Meat – meatballs or meatloaf
  • Chicken
  • Pasta
  • Potatoes
  • Vegetables
  • Salad
  • Bread
  • Dessert
If you can help with a prepared food donation or wish to volunteer to serve please go to
The website contains a full list of items needed for Thursday, May 17th as well as an up to date list of volunteers. 
If you would like to help but are unable to provide a 5 lbs food donation there are many other ways to contribute including buying a Shoprite gift card from the Temple and donating it to the program..
If you have any questions e-mail Brett Norton at
