Every few weeks, Temple Judea volunteers support Harry Chapin Mobile Food Pantries. We distribute food to over 400, and sometimes as many as 550 families at each event. Our responsibilities include checking in families, setting up food for distribution, putting the food in cars, and breaking down the drive-thru set ups. We work through heat, humidity, rain, and sun.
In this time of Covid-19 precautions, our team is masked and provided with gloves. We maintain social distancing among ourselves and with the families driving in.
This has been a great way to help families that have lost jobs, have fought illness during the Covid-19 pandemic and those with continuing needs for produce, juice, and canned goods. The food recipients are grateful and thank us profusely. One little girl drew us a Thank You card.
