Mattanot l’evyonim

Do something about Food Poverty this Purim.

In spite of, or perhaps because of, its fun-filled celebrations and traditions, Purim remains a holiday about social justice. The commandments to eat, drink, and be merry are accompanied by the mitzvah of giving mattanot l’evyonim and tzedakah.

Let’s celebrate Purim by donating food to individuals and families in need in our wider community.

Be part of our Foodbank Initiative

Join us as we mark Purim in these challenging times with a drive to support our local foodbanks. Donating food to people experiencing hardship is key to Purim and more relevant today than ever before.

Follow our social media campaign

This week we are running a campaign on our Facebook and Instagram pages to highlight the work of foodbanks and how you can get involved. Help to raise awareness of this initiative by ‘liking’ and ‘sharing’ posts with family, friends and colleagues.
