On April 28, The Outreach Program was held at Temple Beth-El. Participants packaged 40,000 meals that were distributed to Rhode Island agencies and food pantries.
In addition, $9,800 was raised thanks for generous donations. This was very close to the goal of $10,000.
The Outreach Program’s goal is to end hunger in Rhode Island. This community undertaking took place in the social hall at Temple Beth-El in Providence and contributed the program’s goal of $15 million meals in 2019. This event was sponsored by Temple Beth-El and the Jewish Alliance. The program provides guidance to organize a local event as well as food and equipment. Sponsors provide volunteers and funding.
