In our town, there is a program that helps feed the hungry every night of the week at a different synagogue or Church. The congregations makes the meal for the guests and help serve it. Children are involved and get to not only become familiarized with the problem of hunger and homelessness but actually participate in being a part of the solution.
One of the best parts of the program is that the guests are receiving healthy food made with love by people who care.
It is called the Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless:
