Our COVID-19 Emergency Food Drive is still in full force and delivering to a growing number of vulnerable community members. Every week, B'nai Brith Canada receives more calls for food assistance from seniors, people living under the poverty line, Holocaust survivors, veterans, shut-ins and folks with disabilities.
Our food drive is funded and operated entirely by caring community members and receives no financial support from any outside organization. We rely solely on your donations.
This program provides kosher food, free of charge, for at-risk people who need it and otherwise could not afford it or access it safely. We gear up with masks and gloves to deliver the boxes straight to the doors of the recipients.
We also check on all recipients to ensure that they are okay – from a safe physical distance, of course – and our caring volunteers spend time with them in short social visits. This is especially important because most of the recipients have not left their homes during COVID-19, leaving them feeling depressed and isolated.
