More than 1,200 bags of groceries were collected during the 2012 Jewish Community High Holy Day Food Drive. Volunteers from Person-to-Person and eight Jewish houses of worship in Stamford and Greenwich worked together unloading and sorting the donations of food.
The food drive began more than 20 years ago and continues with the support of the Jewish community. Each year, adults and children at Jewish houses of worship in Stamford and Greenwich collect food between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
Last year, the Person-to-Person Food Pantry provided groceries for more than 170,000 meals. The agency continues to see the need for this resource increase this year. The groceries collected during the High Holy Day Food Drive are a major source of contributions for the Emergency Food Pantry, and help to provide for individuals and families throughout the year.
