Passover Food Drive
Project Manager: Jenn Ferman
Passover is one of the most celebrated Jewish holidays. Our challenge is to meet the vital needs of the financially disadvantaged in our community.
The NCJWC Toronto Passover Food Drive has been packing and delivering Kosher for Passover food boxes since 1982.
Monetary donations enable the Passover Food Drive to purchase most of the Kosher for Passover non-perishable food at wholesale prices.
Passover Food Facts
- The Passover Food Drive achieves its goals through monetary donations used to buy products at wholesale prices. 90% of all the food has to be purchased. Every box is Kosher for Passover.
- Food is collected and donated by community organizations, synagogues, schools and supermarkets.
- National Council of Jewish Women of Canada, Toronto Section accepts referrals for recipients from agencies, synagogues and service and chaplaincy groups.
Tax receipts will be issued for the total amount donated over $18.00.
The Passover Food Drive is entirely volunteer based.
