We start the Haggadah with, "Everyone in need should come and eat." At Masbia Soup Kitchen Network, we are able to say this all year round due to the help from supporters who are inspired by what it teaches us.
In addition to what we do year round, you are invited to join the Charoset Drive to enable Masbia to address the increased need during this Passover season. In a time when children are not getting their breakfast and lunch in school and with the addition of holiday expenses, more families find themselves struggling to put food on the table. With your donation to the Charoset Drive, Masbia will make sure that they have basic Seder staples and more to feed their family during the holiday.
We rely on your strong support to make all of this happen. Please donate generously. Click here.
During the year, families frequent Masbia distributions randomly based on their family needs. Some come bi-weekly, others come once a month, but very few skip the last distribution before Passover. In addition to that, a lot of first-time families, who find themselves in a bind, end up coming. We anticipate a 250% increase in clients coming for Passover and since we are closed the following week, we make sure that we give out enough food to last a long time. This year will be the second year we hold Kosher for Passover holiday meals for the eight days at Masbia, including the Seders.
On the Seder Plate, the charoset is used to sweeten the bitter herb. With your help, Masbia will try to sweeten the holiday for so many needy men, women and children. Charoset is not only a metaphor here. The emergency food packages will include ingredients to make charoset in addition to many other essential foods.
