Most children know that food is an important need to live an active and healthy life. But not all may know there are families that may not be able to afford basic food items because of other household needs or bills. Part of cultivating kindness and good will in our community begins with showing the next generation the importance of caring for ourselves, our families and our community.
On February 17th, students from Yeshivat Netivot Montessori visited JFS’ North Brunswick Kosher Food Pantry with donations collected by the entire school. Children of various ages came in with bags and bins of kosher food to be distributed to our community in need. Netivot Montessori is an Orthodox yeshiva day school committed to “honoring the path of every child” and supporting their learning through engaging and exploratory environment. Thank you to Netivot Montessori, their students and the families who contributed to this donation drop-off.
We could not accomplish our goals of being a year-round Kosher Food Pantry without the support, involvement and enthusiasm of individuals and organizations like you. If you would like to donate kosher food items, see our current 2022 Pantry Wish List or make a direct donation online to our pantries.
