Programs Supported by Your Donations
Sadly, we live in of the poorest metro areas in the United States. Many in our community suffer from food insecurity and question where their next meal comes from. For this reason, we have the JMeals program, an initiative providing food to hundreds of our community.
All proceeds help our JMeals program, which feeds children in our Early Learning Center, students at Akiva Academy, and older adults in our community. The program is integral to our goal of being a resource for the community from "baby to bubbe." Your investment in the program will ensure hundreds in our community receive a nutritious meal.
Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help
With high inflation rates and skyrocketing food costs, sustaining the JMeals program, which feeds our Early Learning children, Akiva Academy students, and local seniors, is more challenging. We rely increasingly on community support to continue a program important to so many in our community.
