Feeding the Hungry During the High Holidays

On Yom Kippur we read of the Prophet Isaiah exhorting the congregation that merely giving up food for a day was not a proper fast.  Rather a proper fast was to feed the hungry and cover the naked.

Throughout the holidays we are offering our members and guests a chance to feed the hungry and to help those struggling for a better life to help themselves.

We will be contributing the donations to the Epiphany UCC Pantry this year.


Please bring good usable food, Most needed items are: Rice and pasta with sauce, dried beans, hearty canned soups and stews, individual size cans of meat, tuna or salmon, cold and hot cereal or grits, peanut butter, bread and powdered milk. Cans of vegetables and fruit are also needed, Items do not need to be kosher.


For more info contact Ina Marks at inamarks@rcn.com

May you all have an easy fast and may we all make the lives of those who are struggling a little easier.
