Please Feed the Needy this Purim Season, Help Masbia Distribute $16,380 Worth of Food.
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 $16,380 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 $16,380 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!
By clicking on the add or subtract buttons, you can choose to sponsor 1 meal or multiple meals and/or 1 package or multiple packages. Your total will then appear on the donation amount box. Your donation sponsors the food distributed in the Purim season. The bar indicates how much money we still need for the Purim food services. Please donate generously.
Kosher Certifying Agency Orthodox Union OU
Masbia is the only kosher certified soup kitchen in America that is open to the public daily. Not only are daily dinners certified by the Orthodox Union (OU), the world's largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency, but everything we give out at our food pantry is certified by them as well. Since we receive a lot of donated food items and federal commodities which don't have a hashgacha (aka kashrut symbol) on the packaging, we found it necessary to have a blanket certification of our entire inventory of emergency food. Not only do we try to give our people the best food in the utmost dignity, we also give them a high standard of kashrut, thus the OU is our certifying agency. (Some of our facilities might have an additional local certification based on what is popular in that neighborhood). All hot food served in our restaurant style soup kitchen is glatt kosher, done with hashgacha temidis, uses vegetables that have been checked for bugs, and is pas yisroel.
