High Holy Day Food Drive 5783

The High Holy Day Food Drive is a long-standing holiday tradition at Temple Beth El. Every year we ask the congregation to honor the new year and our day of fasting by making a monetary contribution to hunger relief. 

This year we hope to raise at least $14,000 to help address hunger in our community. We generally give most of the money to Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, the region’s largest and most cost-effective food bank, which distributes millions of pounds of food each year in southern Wisconsin. Temple Beth El has been recognized as a bronze-level sponsor of Second Harvest and NBC15’s Share the Holidays drive, the only nonprofit organization to achieve this recognition. It’s our goal to reach that level again this year. The funds will also be used to support our hunger relief efforts through community partners such as food pantries, community centers, and schools.

Look for the food drive envelope in your High Holy Day entry card mailing. You can donate on the Temple website either here or here (choose “High Holy Day Food Drive” as payment type). Or bring or mail a check made out to Temple Beth El with “High Holy Day Food Drive” in the memo.

Thank you for your continued donations each year to help us minimize food insecurity in Dane County.
