Please Feed the Needy this Purim Season. Help Masbia of Boro Park Distribute $27,000 Worth of Food. Sponsor Food Today.
On the holiday of Shavuos, we celebrate the day where all Jews stood at Mount Sinai 1312 BCE when all kosher laws came into effect and they found themselves without food. All of the food had become non-kosher and they needed to start their pantry from scratch. The first easy go-to food was milk and dairy so that's why we celebrate Shavuos with eating a dairy meal.
At Masbia, we serve people who find themselves without food every day. For this upcoming holiday, we are preparing extra large emergency food packages for families to be able to celebrate the holiday with food. Masbia of Boro Park will be open for holiday meals as well.
We need more fish, more meat, more challah, eggs, potatoes, and pasta to fill those packages and cook for the Shabbos and Yom Tov meals. This year, Shavuos lasts for 3 days. It starts with Shabbos followed by the holiday. This amounts to a total of 8 special meals that we hope to serve for Shavuos.
For $54, you can sponsor a package for a family of four. Masbia of Boro Park needs food packages for 400 families this holiday, which is a total of $21,600. For $45, you can sponsor a holiday meal for one person, $360 sponsors all 8 meals for one person, $1,800 for all the people (40 people) for an entire meal, or the entire Shavuos for $14,400 for all 8 meals. The entire Shavuos at Masbia of Boro Park both raw food packages and the in-house meals during the holiday at $36,000. Click here to donate holiday meals.
For anyone who donates $1,000 or more, we will post your dedication on the wall of our dining room for Shavuos. Remember to email us the dedication information at [email protected]
If you wish to sponsor the extras such as flowers or dairy products, please reach out to [email protected]
Bring joy to so many needy men, women, and children. Donate to Masbia to fulfill the real mitzvah of Matanot La'Evyonim and Mishloach Manot.
Masbia’s goal is to give out $22,140 worth of food this Purim season. We expect to serve 250 families through our raw-food distributions, which will include special kosher holiday staples for families to be able to prepare their own Purim feast. Masbia will also serve several sit-down meals for the three days; Purim night, a special meal on Purim itself, and another meal on Shushan Purim -- for those who are unable to prepare food for themselves. With the Purim-feast meals at $36 per person and raw food packages at $54, we need to raise $22,140 to cover the food (this does not include other costs). 100% of this money will be spent on food.
Please feed the needy today and sponsor meals, packages, or both!
