SOUTHBURY – The Social Action Committee of B’nai Israel invites friends and congregants to bring donations of non-perishable food for their annual High Holy Days Food Drive to benefit area food banks. Over 200 bags of groceries are donated annually – with tough economic times the need is even more pressing this year. All types of non-perishable food is needed. In especially high demand are protein-rich foods, such as canned meats and fish, hearty soups, chili, stews, peanut butter and beans. Healthful low-sodium and low-sugar canned fruits and vegetables are also being sought, as well as cereal, laundry detergent, diapers and other paper goods.
Donations can be brought to B’nai Israel, 444 Main Street North in Southbury. For further information, call 203-267-3394.
