Mitzvah Morning – April 28, 2024

Mitzvah Morning

April 28, 2024, 10:00 a.m.

For our April Mitzvah Morning, we will be partnering with Food Rescue US, an organization that focuses on repurposing healthy and nourishing food that might otherwise be discarded, and delivering it to people in need.

Volunteers will meet at B’nai Israel, where we will learn more about the organization and how it manages pickups and deliveries in Fairfield County.  Most of the food is picked up at grocery stores and restaurants, and then delivered to food pantries and kitchens in Bridgeport.

Volunteers should bring their mobile phones so they can download the Food Rescue app, which will enable them to choose a “rescue” option that works most conveniently for them based on timing and location.  Some volunteers will be able to run a rescue the same day if they choose, and others can do their part later in the week.  Volunteers can select either option on the Sign Up Genius below.

This is an important event as it serves two purposes: Reduces waste of healthy food items, with less organic material going into landfills; and helps feed hungry children and adults in our community.  And it’s a great way to perform a mitzvah that works with your busy schedule!
