Pesach Info

The Food Bank will be closed the evening of March 11th in order to change over to Kosher for Passover. We will re-open Wednesday March 17th for your Pesach needs.

Please note that there will be multiple deliveries throughout the weeks prior to Pesach.

We recommend you plan a few visits during that time.

Shmurah Matzah
Please note we will be providing shmurah matzah as usual.

Unfortunately, due to anticipated shortage again this year we can only get regular hand shmurah – Whole Wheat and other varieties will not be available.
