Take and Eat Program Update:
Each month, with support from a crew of 50 volunteers, we shop for, cook, prepare and deliver meals for 95 local residents in need. Since we began doing this work, our cost each month has increased from $180 to $240, with an individual meal costing $2.52. Join this CBI Community Service project. How can you support Take and Eat? You can do any or all of the following:
Sign up to spend one Sunday a month helping with meal preparation or delivery
Bring in baked goods to contribute toward the meal
Sponsor a month of meals by making a donation of $240 to feed 95 people.
Make a donation in any amount. Donations to Take and Eat may be given in honor of community simchas or as memorial gifts.
