Food for Passover - From the riverdale Jewish community partnership

 

In Riverdale, we are acutely aware that for many in our community this Pesach brings some unique challenges. We recognize that each household is being affected differently by the current crisis. Some of us remain financially secure, but need help with the logistics of holiday preparation and meals, while some of us are struggling to meet our day to day financial obligations and cannot afford the cost of holiday meals.

Thanks to generous sponsors across the Riverdale community we are able to offer pre-made Seder and Yom Tov meals for everyone in our community on a "pay what you can" basis. Participation by anyone in need, regardless of ability to pay is encouraged. Any support you do give, however modest, enables us offer this service to as many people as possible.  How much each person pays or does not pay will be kept strictly confidential. For reference, each meal costs us about $25 per person, per meal to purchase.

If you don't need this service, but want to help others please donate at www.thebayit.org/maot. All funds will be used for subsidized food. Any surplus will be used to continue to supply food to those in need after Passover.

PLEASE NOTE: Unless special arrangements are made in advance, we can only offer this service to those who live in our area - zipcodes 10463 and 10471 and immediately adjacent parts of Yonkers. 

Please share your cell phone # so we can text you updates.


Food will be delivered on Tuesday or Wednesday before Passover.  We will be in touch after receiving your order to finalize details.
