Some of the Temple Jeremiah Social Justice programs:

Backpack Blessings
Imagine being hungry and not having enough to eat? This program feeds children who do not have enough to eat and are not sure where their next meal will come from. We are helping a number of children stay nourished over their weekends by sending them home from school with a bag full of food. To learn more, visit our Backpack Blessings page.

Feed the Hungry
Feed the Hungry, where we pack hundreds of bag lunches to donate to those in need, takes place the first Sunday of every month during the school year. To learn more, visit our Feed the Hungry page or sign up to volunteer to make and deliver lunches downtown directly on our Sign-Up Genius page.

Eat and Be Well
Support Temple Jeremiah’s newest social action project by volunteering for “Eat and Be Well,” a hospital-based food pantry that provides fresh produce and lean meats to food insecure outpatients. To learn more, visit our Eat and Be Well page.

Family Promise
Temple Jeremiah participates in Family Promise, a national organization that helps homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence. To learn more, visit our Family Promise page.

Social Justice Advocacy
The Temple Jeremiah Advocacy Committee is focused on educating people about social justice issues and giving people opportunities to speak out in support of social programs and changes that improve the lives of others. Some of the social justice issues we will be working on are hunger, affordable housing, and child education. To learn more, visit our Social Justice Advocacy page.
