Temple Rodeph Torah Donates More Than 8,000 Meals to The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties During Annual Yom Kippur Food Drive
Every year, Temple Rodeph Torah conducts a food drive at Marlboro High School during Yom Kippur, and this year they collected more than 9500 pounds of food, which is equivalent to more than 8,000 meals for neighbors in need.
Temple Rodeph Torah’s annual Yom Kippur food drive at Marlboro High School is one of our largest single day food drives of the year, and on behalf of all of the people who will receive meals from this donation, we are enormously thankful,” said Linda Keenan, Director of Development, The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
The FoodBank serves one in 10 residents throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties and 40,000 children on a yearly basis. Food Drives are critical to our ability to provide food to the community, helping us support 300 feeding programs.
