Food-A-Rama is back in person! We’re delighted to share the news that we plan to welcome people back into the dining room and the bakery for the first time since 2019. We are planning to continue our curbside pickup this year, too. Come join us on Tuesday, November 7, 2023!

To do this right, we need your help! We have plenty of opportunities for everyone to work together and help make Food-A-Rama 2023 a reality.

We’d love to have you volunteer for any or all of these:

  • Cooking sessions
    • Cabbage soup (Wednesday, October 4, 9:00 am–12:00 pm) in TBE kitchen
    • Matzo balls (Thursday, October 12, 3:00–6:00 pm) AT UW HILLEL
    • Chicken soup cooking/packaging (Sunday, October 15, 12:30–5:00 pm; two shifts) in TBE kitchen
    • Cookie baking (Tuesday, October 3, 8:30 am–1:30 pm) in TBE kitchen
    • Knish making (we’re bringing them back!) (TBD) in TBE kitchen
    • Chopped liver (Sunday, November 5, 12:00–5:00 pm) in TBE kitchen
    • Bakery baking (at your own pace—deliver to TBE on Monday, November 6)
  • Order preparation, setup, decorations, etc. (Sunday, November 5, and Monday, November 6)
  • Day-of volunteers (Tuesday, November 7)

You’ll find more details about these on the Google signup sheet. As details get solidified, we’ll enter updates there and notify anyone who has already signed up.

Don’t hesitate to sign up for multiple shifts if you’re available!

How to sign up?

  • You can go straight to the Google signup sheet and enter your name for a shift. (Note that there is one tab for cooking sessions and a second tab for November 5, 6, and 7 shifts!)
  • You can email us (, tell us your name and what shift you’re volunteering for, and we’ll get your name on the list.

Either way, we'll send you a confirmation a week in advance with any relevant instructions or reminders.


Send any questions to and one of the Food-A-Rama co-chairs (Brad Kahn, Sharon Kahn, or David Bookstaff) will respond.

Thanks so much for volunteering! Food-A-Rama can't happen without you!
