Pesach Packing with Tomchei Shabbos

Tomchei Shabbos of Bergen County is partnering with Five Star Caterers for this year’s Pesach packing. With Kenny Yager at the helm, the packing will be done by Five Star employees as well as a  team of MTA seniors.  WIth the help of Kenny, and with the encouragement of Rabbi Michael Taubes, who has encouraged his students enthusiastically to take the day off to pack, Tomchei Shabbos hopes to have the Pesach boxes packed seamlessly to benefit the needy in Bergen County.

Tomchei Shabbos continues to work with all the area rabbeim to assist families who need food assistance. Many frum families in our neighborhoods will be recipients of Yom Tov boxes this Pesach, and many of the boxes are delivered to locations other than the homes of the recipients to preserve dignity and prevent any kind of embarrassment.

When all is said and done, at both packing locations in Bergenfield and Fair Lawn, Tomchei Shabbos will have packed more than 1,000 pounds of matzah, close to 4,500 pounds of chicken, over 500 pounds of chopped meat, and close to 1,000 dozen eggs. In addition to those staples, the boxes include wine or grape juice, non-perishable items like oil, jelly, matzah meal, ketchup, cake mixes, sugar, salt, coffee and tea, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables—sufficient for the size of every family it serves.

The Tomchei Shabbos warehouse at 13 Foster Street in Bergenfield continues to be a great location for the community to come together to serve each other.

Tomchei Shabbos would also like to encourage all adult members of the community to join in the packing. Packing will take place on Monday March 30 and Wednesday April 1, during the day. For more information or to register to pack, please email [email protected]. Advance registration for Pesach packing is required.
