Coming Up

Yom Kippur Food Drive

Monday-Friday, October 3-7, Food Bins inside

Sunday, October 9 10 a.m.-noon, outside of the Chapel entrance

Each year we fulfill the mandate from the prophet Isaiah, “Is this the kind of fast I desire? … It is sharing your bread with the hungry!” When we hear these words chanted on Yom Kippur we are cognizant that so many in our community are facing hunger. At Chizuk Amuno we strive to provide hundreds of pounds of food to local Baltimore agencies working with those who are food insecure. 

This year, the food collected will benefit the Baltimore County Student Support Network, Maryland Food Bank, and Paul's Place.

A food donation "wish-list": 

Ready-to-eat, shelf stable, microwaveable food items such as Cup O Noodles, Hormel Compleats, canned pasta meals, beef stew, canned fruits, canned meats/tuna, canned vegetables, dish soap, disposable salt and pepper shakers, ketchup and mayonnaise, laundry detergent, macaroni & cheese, metal forks, napkins, paper lunch bags, pasta and sauce, peanut butter and jelly, plastic baggies, plastic ware, rice, stove top stuffing, sugar, tea bags, toilet paper
