Celebrating Passover is a beautiful tradition that requires special food to properly observe the holiday. However, it can be difficult for families living on a limited budget to afford the high cost of Passover food.
A lead sponsorship cash gift from The Rockwern Charitable Foundation, together with donations by individual community members, will help purchase fresh produce, frozen kosher Passover meals, and additional kosher for Passover packaged items to make the Passover meal complete. Jewish Family Service’s goal is to raise $18,000 by March 22 to purchase Passover food.
To address this challenge, Jewish Family Service is asking individuals and families to donate money or their time to the 22nd annual Dr. Samuel S. Rockwern Passover Delivery Project of Jewish Family Service. Volunteers will deliver boxes filled with Passover food on Sunday, March 29, to the homes of vulnerable families throughout Greater Cincinnati—both families and older adults on fixed incomes.
In addition to providing food for Passover, Jewish Family Service Heldman Family Food Pantry, which is located at Jewish Family Service Barbash Family Vital Support Center, provides food throughout the year for families in need. The food pantry is open to the Greater Cincinnati Jewish community as well as neighbors in the Clifton neighborhood. It serves more than 200 households every year and is the only food pantry in the region that includes a full array of kosher and non-kosher foods and meat.
