Pack It Up for Purim

Right here in New York, there are individuals and families who don't know when, or if, they'll see their next meal.

To fight hunger in our community, we'll be collecting and distributing basic groceries for the neediest New Yorkers through our fourth annual Pack It Up for Purim initiative, which begins on Sunday, February 23rd and ends on Sunday, March 16th.

When you join us for Pack It Up for Purim, you’ll be part of an even bigger effort to deliver one million meals across the New York area through Feeding Our Neighbors: An Interfaith Response, organized by UJA-Federation and the Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York.

Feeding Our Neighbors calls on each of us to help feed the hungry in our community.
