Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru Helps Those in Need

Kosher Food

“I lost my job in March and we are having trouble living on my husband's salary alone...I'm taking care of my elderly father-in-law who lives with us,” said the young mother. “We keep kosher, which is expensive, and these food drives help feed my family.” She is one of the 1,100 individuals served at yesterday’s Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru at Federation headquarters. Participants received packages of fresh produce, challah, kosher meat and non-perishables to help ease the financial pressure created by the pandemic. The food distribution was generously underwritten by Yleana and Yoram Izhak and Janice and Alan Lipton. Partners include Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Center, our primary human service agency Jewish Community Services of South Florida, Repair the World Miami, Farm Share and Miami-Dade County. Our next Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru will take place Thursday, January 28 from 9-11 a.m. at Federation headquarters, 4200 Biscayne Boulevard.
