Agudas Achim Congregation
MLK Day of Service 2021
On MLK Day of Service January 2020, we packed nearly 20,000 meals for distribution locally to help families in need, while engaging with elected officials on systematic support for food insecure families. It was an extraordinary day! We were hoping to do it again this year but unfortunately - COVID.
This year for MLK Day of Service 2021 the Social Action Committee is inviting our community to join together to while socially distant and following Covid-19 safety protocols.
Power Pack Program
Did you know that many elementary school students in our area have very little to eat between their Friday school lunch and Monday school breakfast? The Power Pack Program (P3), spearheaded by Food For Others, provides these children with food to take home and eat over the weekend. Agudas Achim’s Social Action Committee has teamed up with Alfred Street Baptist Church Social Justice Ministry to provide Power Packs to Elementary School students.
Power Pack Program provides supplemental weekend food to elementary students. These packs of healthy food items are sent home with students on Fridays to help many families who are food insecure get through the weekend.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE??
Suggested items include: individual-sized containers of mac & cheese, chili, pasta and cereal; oatmeal packets; tuna/chicken/ cheese kits with crackers; healthy snacks like granola or cereal bars, fruit cups (not in syrup), dried fruit; single serving boxed milk and 100% juice.
Please DO NOT include anything with peanut butter,candy, poptarts, Vienna sausages, glass containers, applesauce with foil lids.
NO CONTACT DROP-OFF.
Fill the Van on Monday, January 18th at AAC at 10-12 noon or 5:00 - 7:00 pm
We will fill the van and deliver the power packs to Food for Others
The need is greater this year than ever before - thank you so much for your generosity!
