Looking for a safe way to lend a hand during this pandemic? Temple Jeremiah is holding a packaged food drive to benefit A Just Harvest, a food pantry on the north side of the city.
Like most pantries, A Just Harvest is experiencing a dramatic increase in the need for food from families, seniors and individuals with disabilities. During this period of social distancing, A Just Harvest is meeting the needs of the Chicagoland community by delivering individual food packages. Temple Jeremiah will be collecting food items to be used in those individual packages.
A Just Harvest is seeking: canned pasta meals like ravioli and spaghetti, canned chili, canned vegetables, ramen noodles, instant rice, beans, mac & cheese, pasta sauce, canned fruit, and instant oatmeal. Also, as everyone could use a little ray of sunshine during this hard time, consider including a card or picture drawn by your children in your donation bags.
Food items can be delivered to Temple Jeremiah Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Simply leave bags of items by the front door and the maintenance staff will bring them into the building.
