    many as 15 cartons to cover
    monthly food needs

Smaller than the monthly distribution
packages, these are intended for
small families or elderly individuals
who do not have the storage space
for larger parcels.

Yom Tov
Food Relief

Aimed at easing the additional pre-
holiday burden before Sukkos,
Pesach, and Shavous the Yom Tov
Food Relief Program provides
struggling families with generous
amounts of essential food items.

    determine precise pantry needs

    orders for essentials and other
    Yom Tov-specific foods

    one-day event for volunteers to
    sort & pack

Biannual
Bulk Food Sale

In 2004, we introduced the
Biannual Bulk Food Sale program
to provide bulk items at cost price
directly to families who are not in
need of free food packages — but
can use a helping hand to make
ends meet for the Yomim Tovim.
Program Image

What it
looks like

  • Our dedicated phone line and website
    accept over 2,000 orders in
    Lakewood and the surrounding areas
  • We also place orders for locations
    across the U.S., from Miami to L.A. and Dallas to Chicago
  • Over two thousand pallets are
    delivered to local warehouses,
    where recipients come to pick up
    and check out.

RoundUp
Program

RoundUp makes every penny count
by rounding up your grocery order
to the nearest dollar and donating
the difference to a family in need.

What it
looks like

  • Sign up for RoundUp by calling,
    emailing or clicking the button
    below and providing the necessary
    information.
  • Shop at a participating grocery store
    as you normally would and give them
    your phone number at checkout.
  • Your total will automatically round
    up to the next dollar and the
    difference sent to Tomchei Shabbos.
