The J is committed to fighting hunger, especially within our local community. Be part of this community outreach effort.
On Monday, February 18 the J’s Teen Mitzvah Corp will be going to Austin Street Center to serve lunch. We need your help! In order to make sure there is enough food for all of the people at Austin Street, we need to collect 400 sandwiches and 400+ of other items like chips, fruit, and cookies to go along with the sandwiches.
How to make Sandwiches
Sandwiches should be meat only (bologna, salami, roast beef, turkey, corned beef, pastrami etc). No cheese sandwiches, please. Place each sandwich in a zip lock bag and label with a permanent marker showing the main ingredient and bread type (bologna/wheat).
Eliminate mustard, mayo etc. Sandwiches stay fresher without them – no nut butters. Heels are not used for these sandwiches.
In addition to sandwiches, we need:
- Bulk packages of individual mustard packets
- Bulk packages of individual mayo
- Bulk packages of individual bags of chips and salty snacks
- Bulk packages of various individual cookie packets
- Bulk packages of sliced cheese
- Large bags of clementines
- New towels
- New blankets
Drop-off is on Monday, February 18 from 7:30 – 10:15 am at the J on Wheels trailer located in our parking lot.
