Help with Hilltop Community Worship Center's Community Kitchen

Temple Israel continues to expand our partnership with The Hilltop Community Worship Center's Community Kitchen

The # of individuals and families coming in has increased more than 500% since we started in April 2017, some nights handing out nearly 300 dinners, many to children.

Hilltop Community Worship Center is a Seventh-day Adventist Church.  Their Sabbath, like ours, is observed from Friday evening to Saturday evening.  At Hilltop their worship services are Saturdays from 11:00-1:00 and then their congregation is invited to stay for lunch or help in the Community Kitchen which serves lunch from 1:30-3:30.

“Every person who comes to our kitchen is welcome regardless of race, sex, age, color, national origin, religious preference, special needs (disability) or income. There’s a “no questions asked” policy in place at the Church.”

We’re so excited about our growing partnership with our new family at the Hilltop Community Worship Center and meeting more of our own Temple Israel family, and friends, while working side by side.  There are now 4 components to our partnership:

  1.  Wednesdays & Saturdays.  We are continuing our commitment to having 4-6 representatives from Temple Israel help every Wednesday from 5:30 - 8:00 PM (come by 5:15 if you can) to serve meals to the community.  We have recently added a shift the 2nd Saturday of each month from 1:00-3:30.
  2.  Give.  It costs approximately $527 per month for everything from plates & to-go containers, to wrapped utensils & foil.  With the initial Lurie Micro Grant we are funding these paper supplies, with the Church & Mid-Ohio Food Bank sponsoring all the food served.  Please donate to the Social Action Fund-Hilltop Community Kitchen at https://www.templeisrael.org/give-to-ti or send checks, payable to Temple Israel, please write “Hilltop Community Kitchen” on the memo line, and mail to Temple Israel 431 E. Broad St., Columbus OH 43215
  3. Temple Israel Teen Program - First Saturday of month, from 1:00-4:00pm (1/4, 2/1, 3/7, 4/4, 5/2...):  helping serve meals to community & congregation; possibly spending time with kids in the community that come in to eat:  reading, coloring, other crafts; or helping to organize the pantry.  Signups will handle up to 6 Temple Israel teens & 1 Temple Israel adult.
  4. Kroger pickup.  We need 1 person to pickup donated food at Krogers (West Broad and Wilson Rd), load it, wrap frozen meet in thermal wrap, drive 10 mintues to Church, unload your car, weigh receipt and put all frozen goods away.  This needs to be done Tuesday morning's between 8:30-10:30am.

What to expect: The church is located at 2622 Sullivant Ave.  The neighborhood has all the issues of poverty in our community:  homelessness, drug use and prostitution.  You will see all of these but we’ve never had an issue and everyone who comes in for a meal is gracious and thankful.  Security guard is present.

Go around the block (all one-way streets) and park either in the gated lot off to the right of the alley, or on Burgess Ave right near the side door. Knock loudly on the side door if a Deacon or the Security Guard aren't outside waiting for you (we've had to wait a couple of minutes but no worries, you're on a busy street)*.   On Saturday's the front glass doors may be open.  A security guard or Deacon will walk you to your car when we’re done.  *Any issues when you arrive you may call Lisa Lavalas at 614-204-2496; any issues or questions before your shift call Liz at 614-579-7593.

We greet people as they come in, serve their meals, speak to congregants and clean up before leaving.  Expect to be out of there no later than 8:10 (serving hours are posted as 6:00-8:00) on Wednesdays and 4:00 on Saturdays for Teen Program.

The Hilltop Community Worship Center members are filled with smiles and hugs!

Many of us have committed to one shift a month and we hope you will sign up at for one or more time slots that fit your schedule.  When you have a good experience, as we did, tell your friends and families.  B'nai Mitzvah prep-age and up can certainly help.
