Join the EDCJCC for the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Sara & Samuel J. Lessans Good Deeds Week – a global mitzvah week started in Israel in 2007 and now celebrated in 108 countries!
This year’s Good Deeds Week theme is food insecurity. In the DMV, the Capital Area Food Bank reports an estimated 250,000 people will face food insecurity. A survey in April 2020 also found that Black households in D.C. were 13.5 times more likely to report that they sometimes did not have enough food to eat than White households in the city.
Put together jars with all of the ingredients someone needs to make mac ‘n’ cheese at home. We provide all of the supplies and you make the jars! Each mac ‘n’ cheese kit will include all of the supplies for you to make 11 jars. Detailed instructions will be included. The finished mac ‘n’ cheese jars will benefit clients at SOME (So Others Might Eat). Please note that you will need at least a large backpack to transport the supplies because they include a 10lb bag of pasta as well as eleven 32oz jars.
Mac ‘n’ cheese kit pick-up is Sunday, April 11 from 2-3 PM. Drop off your finished jars at Edlavitch DCJCC on Sunday, April 18, from 10-11 AM.
We request a tax-deductible fee of $25 for each kit (the actual cost of each kit is $42). If cost is a barrier to your participation please email Sonya at email@example.com.
We only have 30 kits available so grab yours today!
