Eating With Dignity
Saving families from soup kitchens.
It’s hard to imagine Jewish families without enough food on their table, but the occurrence is far too frequent. Families who seem financially stable on the outside don’t have basic food – bread, rice, milk – to feed their families. Often embarrassed to go to a soup kitchen or turn to public assistance for help, Karmey Chesed usually hears about these dire situations from caring neighbors or friends, and we step in. To save them from the shame of standing on line at a soup kitchen, our dedicated and discreet volunteers regularly deliver well-stocked food baskets to the doorsteps of needy families. Our food packages maintain the health and lives of the needy families.
