Food For All

Yad Ezra volunteers get to work after a successful food drive.


hree days after the Yom Kippur fast
concluded, about two dozen volun-
teers converged on Yad Ezra in
Berkley to help sort more than
16,000 pounds of canned and packaged food
received so far in the kosher food pantry's annual
food drive.
Some 25 local synagogues, Jewish schools and
other community agencies participated in the
Yom Kippur project to assist Yad Ezra's 1,100
"Once again, we are very grateful for the ongo-
ing support from the community as we partner
together to help alleviate hunger," said Yad

Ezra's development director Lea Luger.
In all, Yad Ezra expects about 20,000 pounds of
food from this year's drive. It distributes more than
650,000 pounds of food each year, mostly pur-
chased with monetary contributions from
supporters in the community. ❑
