If you’d like to do a mitzvah — or good deed in Yiddish –all you need is some peanut butter and jelly.
Congregation Kol Tikvah is hosting an event where families can prepare and drop off lunch for others in need.
Volunteers provide a sandwich, chips, cookies, water, fruit, and a napkin and can decorate the lunch bag if they so choose.
Nancy Nussbaum, who has led Kol Tikvah’s social action committee for eight years, said the project started in the summer of 2011 when she, her husband, and friends Bruce and Betsy Kallor met at the home of Murray and Harlene Zweig to make lunches to deliver to Lifenet4families.
Since then, they have collected anywhere from 200 to 400 sandwiches on the last Monday of each month to deliver to organizations like Our Father’s House Soup Kitchen and Hope South Florida, which help feed the hungry and homeless.
Volunteers should deliver their packed lunches on Monday, June 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. under the portico at Congregation Kol Tikvah, located at 6750 N. University Drive.
